THE HIGGINSOKS IN ENGLAND AND 

AMERICA. 



BY EBEN PUTNAM. 



Looking at the map of England, one observes the coun 
ties of Shropshire, Staflbrd, and Leicestershire, in the 
order named, nearly in the centre of the kingdom and run- 
ninoj from west to east. Buttins: ao-ainst Stafford and 
Leicester, on the south, is Warwickshire. From Shrews- 
bury town to Leicester town, as the crow flies, is about 
eighty miles. Ten miles to the north of Shrewsbury, and 
half-way to Whitechurch, is the towji of Wem. About twenty 
miles south-west of Leicester, in the northern central part 
of Warwickshire, is the noted city of Coventry. Five 
miles west of Coventry is Berkeswell, and west of that 
parish is Solihull. 

It is in this territory, so rudely described, that one must 
turn for information regarding the ancestors of the Ameri- 
can Higginsons. There was the original home of the name. 
To be sure, the name occurs in Lancashire at a date as early 
as the middle of the sixteenth century, notably at Leigh, near 
the southern border, and at other places in neighboring 
counties ; but the name seems in early days to have particu- 
larly developed in that western central part of England. 

As the forms in which the name could and did appear 
are varied, it would be an almost hopeless task to attempt 
to arrange in genealogical sequence the families or persons 
bearing those forms at the earlier periods. 

Isaac and Ike may be the earliest form of the name from 
which may have been derived Higgins and Higginson. 
Hickey and Hicks, Hickerson and Hickens, are very likely

Z THE HIGGINSONS IN ENGLAND AND AMERICA. 

but modifications of the same name. Of those forms, Hio^s^ins 
certainly is very early, and Higginson was sometimes so 
written. Hickerson for Hioo^inson is not an uncommon 
occuiTence. The name was so pronounced in Virginia. 
By the opening of the sixteenth century the names Higgin- 
son and Higgins were apparently fixed, and only slovenly 
usage has confounded them. 

While Higgins is quite a common name and found exten- 
sively throughout England, the name of Higginson is con- 
fined to localities, and such localities are generall}^ in western 
England and in parts of the Midlands. It is by no means 
a common name. The bearers of it have been, as far as 
one can judge from the records coming down to us, a race 
of well-to-do yeomen, and now and then of higher estate. 
Undoubtedly the Higginsons in Shropshire north of Shrews- 
bury, and the Higginsons in northern Warwickshire, are all 
of the same fiimily. Whether the other and smaller groups ^ 

revealed by investigation belong to that family, or are 
descendants of some other earlj^ Higgins or Hickerson, etc., 
is an open question. It does not seem probable that all bear- 
ing the name are of the same male descent. No such claim 
could be made for the Higginses, and it is likely that the 
afiix son was criven in more than one case and became a 
fixture. ^^ 

Guppy, in his work showing the distribution of English | 

names, shows that in 1890 there were to every ten thousand 
farmers and land-owners in Cheshire fourteen by the name 
of His:^inson ; in the combined counties of Leicestershire and 
Rutland, which may be taken to mean the former in this case, 
seventeen ; in Lancashire seven ; and in Salop no less than 
twenty. Under the heading of the latter county he lists 
Higginson as a district name, i.e., one that is found in from 
four to nine counties. 

The name of Higgins is also a Wem name.

quest to the end of the reign of Henry III., 1066-1272 
(much lator dnta are given, however, often as late as the 
middle of the fourteenth century), there is no mention of 
the name of Higginson. 

There are, comparatively, few families, either in England 
or America, who can claim a proved descent from a pro- 
genitor living in the early part of the fifteenth century ; 
the exceptions being those who have held possession of the 
same lands for many generations, or who have been of such 
importance that the chain of descent has been preserved by 
the histonan. 

To this rule the Higginsons are no exception. The name, 
as far as I have learned, does not appear on such records as 
are aeooq«?ibV prior to the venr 1500. 

It is evident, however, by that time the family was es- 
tablished in and about Wem, in Shropshire, and then, or 
soon after, in and about Barkeswell, in Warwickshire. 

The Hijrofinsons of Wem and Barkeswell were related, as 

CO ' 

appears from wills on record ; but the connecting link is 
missing. Probably, if we could find the will of the father of 
John Hio-oi-inson, of Barkeswell, it is almost a certaintv that 
the exact relationship between him and those of his genera- 
tion living in Wem would be shown. It is doubtful, how- 
ever, if the family could be carried farther back unless a 
careful search of the subsidy rolls, and other rolls and records 
at the Public Record Office, should reveal something upon 
which it was possible to build a pedigree. 

WEM. 

Wem is so near Shrewsbury and the Welch border that 
the inhabitants must have suffered from the frequent forays 
of the Welch, and, perhaps, in a great measure were of the 
ancient Celtic or British race. 

In the time of Edward (13th century) it has been esti- 
mated that the population of England was but two and a 
quarter million, and in 1650 that of England and Wales 



'u.

but five and one-half millions ; having increased but a hall 
million during the preceding century. In 1871 the popu- 
lation of Salop was only a quarter million. These figures | 
are given to show that in the fifteenth century and at the | 
beginning of the next, Wem could not have been very | 
densely populated, although it was the seat of the Pantulfs. i 
As it is evident at that time in the parish were several i 
families of Iligginsons, it follows the family was of consid- 
erable antiquity in that neighborhood. 

Wemc is mentioned in Domesday, and the Saxon owners 
were AVighe, Lenuinus, Alveva, and Aelviava. The place 
was granted to Count Roger, in capito, whose mesne tenant 
was Willelmus Pantulf. The latter held Edstaston, Horton, 
Cotton, etc. The Norman, William Pantulf, held no less 
than eleven manors in the old Hundred of Odenet. He was 
Lord of Noron, near Falaise, and had followed Roger de 
MontgoDiery into England, and received gifts of manors in :. 
Salop, Stafibrd, and Warwickshire. He was the first baron 
of Wem. Roofer intrusted to him the administration of his % 

earldom of Shrewsbury.* #| 

Rev. Samuel Garbet, in his history of AYem, printed in 
1818, but written at a much earlier date (about 1750), says : 
"The parish of AYem is very extensive and contains the 
chapelries of Edstaston, Newtown, and the townships of 
Aston, Cotton, Horton, Lacon, Lowe with Ditches, Noth- 
WGod, Soulton, Tilley, and Wolverly." The Trench farm, 
whence Rupert viewed the town of W^em but cared not to 
attack, is in Tilley, and it is said that here a castle formerly |i , 

stood. Wem was the first town in Shropshire that declared , 

for Parliament and received a garrison. 

Under Cotton (formerly Cote, of which Cot ten is plural, 
[Eyton]) Garbet states that the whole township was called I 

Cotton, but more especially three houses about half mile f 

from Quino brook. The first of those was a copyhold, and I 

with a small estate formerly belonged to John Higginson, ^

and from his heirs passed to the Sherrats. The next messuage 

stood upon a freehold estate formerly in possession of 

Richard Higginson, who at the survey in 1561 produced an 

old deed with an ancient seal without date, whereby Madoc,* 

the son of Yarefoot, son of Madoc, of Acton in Brumfield, 

gave to William, the son of Eoger de Tyshoo, four bovates 

of arable land Ivino: in the fields of Cotton in the fee of 

Wem. This grant would be about fifty-two acres. Some 

part of this land had been sold by Eichard Higginson, who 

produced other new deeds whereby it appeared that he held ' 

a messuage with several parcels of land by knight's service, 

viz., one-tenth part of a knight's fee, and did pay the same 

part, being ten shillings, on the death of his father, William 

Hig"gin60u. 

Tyschoo is, or was, a manor in Warwickshire, f and in the 
time of Edward II. (1307-1327) was among the possessions 
of Edward, Baron of Stafford. 

The return of William Pantulf, Baron of Wem, is missing 
in the Liber Nio^er. I 

Between 1500 and 1560 there were residino^ in Wem as i 

heads of families, Allen, Johan, William, William (2,) 
Eichard, John, and Thomas Hiffo^inson, some of these 
dying after 1550, and at Broughton, Halen (Alen) Haken- 
son. 

Probably in the above enumeration two or more stand in 
the relationship of father and son, but this state of aflairs 
shows a settlement in Wem prior to 1500. 

In 1561 John and Eichard Higginson were freeholders in 
AVem, and in 1564 John and Thomas Higfginson were two 
of the twenty customary holders.

Henry Bishop, of Newport, R.I., New Haven, Conn., and Boston, 

Mass. (1638-1664). 



t 



In the Rhode Island Colony Records, Vol. 1, p. 92, we I 

learn that Henry Bishop (the brother of Lieut. -Gov. | 

James Bishop, of New Haven, Conn.) was made an inhabi- / | 

tant of Newport, 20-3-1638, and was made freeman in 1640. | 

How lon^^ he remained in Rhode Island cannot be proved; I 

but he appears, of record, in the New Haven Colony, of | 

which his brother James had been the first secretary, as | 

having taken the oath of fidelity at New Haven, July 1, | 

1644, and was made freeman on Aug. 5, 1644. (Vol. 2, p. I 

139.) 

After that time Henry is noted in the colonial registers 
several times up to the year ho left Connecticut to reside in 
Boston where he died. 

In 1646 he is called Goodman Bishop (p. 264). 

During the year 1648 he had a dispute with Mr. John 
Davenport (whose farm he rented, or occupied) on account 
of "corne," and was recorded as not being a settled planter, 
"but may remove at leisure." . . . "a man of place 
and esteem, and having a good visible estate fixed in the 
plantation." 

The same year he was to drive cattle to Fairfield to winter. 
In the examination of the dispute in accounts with Mr. 
Daveupoii:, Henry was asked if he had any witness, and pro-

duced his brother, James Bishop. He was fined the same 
year for not being provided with bullets ; and he sued John 
Moss and Isaac Whitehead for taking his canoe. 

In January, 1648-9 he is registered as "about going forth 
of the town." In 1652 he was still in the New Haven 
Colony. 

"July 24, 1655, Patience, wife of Henry Bishop, is recorded 
as having died in New Hampshire," while Hinman's " Puritan 
Settlers," I am informed, has this settlement : " Died at New 
Haven, Conn., Patience, wife of Henry Bishop, Julj^ 20, 
1655." 

I have not been able to discover any original record show- 
ing that either Lieut-Gov. James Bishop, or his brother 
Hcnr}^ resided in New Hnmpshire. A reliable New Haven 
correspondent informs me that James Bishop sold a house in 
New Hampshire in 1647. Did he reside in New Hampshire 
before joining the New Haven Colony? 

About seventeen months after Patience, the wife of Henrv 
Bishop, died, his name is found in the Boston marriage 
register as follows: "1656-12-20. Henry Bishop of New 
Haven to Elizabeth AVilbore, widow. By Pich'^ Bellingham, 
Dep. Gov." In his will (Boston Prob. Ofiice, Book 1, p. 
281), dated April 1, 1665, "Samuel Wilbore of Tauton " 
gives " unto my young wife Elizabeth all ye movable goods 
in my house in Boston where at present I do inhabit at time 
of my decease" — "also all my sheep and lambs at Dor- 
chester " — "also a mare and colt at Jno. Moredo of Brantry." 
He leaves his lands in Rhode Island, and his interests in the 
iron mills at Taunton, Mass., to his oldest son, Samuel; 
other properties to his other sons, Joseph and Shadrock, 
with allowances "in case my sd wife marry another man." 
Old Mr. Wilbore died between April first and November 
following, when his will was proved "at a meeting of ye 
magistrates." The "young wife Elizabeth " gave herself 
and her fortune to Henry Bishop, shortly after her husband's 
death, and Mr. Bishop became a citizen of Boston.

.Boston Town Records, p. 154, show that at a meeting 
held 12:1: 1659-60, Henry Bishop was chosen one of the 
four constables for Boston. 

Eecords show that he was eno^as^ed in makins: and receiv- 

CO c 

ing shipments of merchandise with the Barbadoes, and had 
an account with Henry Glover, of iSTew Haven, also. ^--^ 

Mr. Bishop died, according to an entry in the Boston 
Registry Office, May 11, 1664. His wife died soon after her 
husband's decease, though her death is not in the city register. 
At that time death records were more frequently neglected 
than births or marrias^es. 

Henry Bishop did not leave a will. 

Nathaniel Bishop, who owned the land on the lower side 
of Bishop's lane, now Hawley st., Boston, signed the 
inventory of the estate of his brother Henry. There were 
debts owinsr the estate amounting to £169, horses in New 
Haven, and 4,500 pounds of sugar and debts due Henry 
Bishop in Barbadoes. Total assets of the estate amount to 
£359.15.3, with debts due from the estate. 
• On the back of the inventory is written: "Nath. Bishop 
deposed that this paper contained a true Inventory of the 
Estate of the late Henry Bishop his brother y* is come to ^ 

his hands acknowledged that when he finds more he will |^* k \ 

returne it. Edw. Dausen." | > 

I have not discovered anv evidence to show that Henry | ' 

Bishop had issue by either of his wives. ^

Mass., records, wills of Rowley persons, etc., is equivalent 
to a cow common. In a " Glossary of Words used in the

The part in hand reviews the settlement and separation 
of Salisbury and Amesbury, and contains records of the 
families included in the alphabetical classification, Allen —

The completed book will enumerate 5,000 persons bear- 
ino: 235 surnames, very few of which have been written 
about. Aside frojn partial and brief sketches, which mostly 
appeared a generation ago, very little has been accom- 
plished in the chosen field of Mr. Hoyt's work. The fami- 
lies of southern Xew Hampshire and the whole lower 
Meri'imack valley were intimateh' connected with those of 
ancient Salisbury.

The Westward Movement. The Colonies and the 
Kepublic West of the Alleghanies. 1763-1798. By 
Justin AVinsor. Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, & Co. 1897. 

The beginnings of the English settlements in America and 
the effect of the changed conditions in the South after the 
introduction of slave labor, the later chancres brought about 
by the great Scotch-Irish migration into the Blue Ridge and 
beyond, and the welding together of the present United 
States, are what these books treat about. 

The story of Virginia and her neighbors is a concise history 
of the beginnings and development of the older Southern 
States of English origin. 

The beginnings of Xew England and the Old Dominion 
were more intimately connected, both by policy and blood, 
than we of the present time are accustomed to think. 
The impartial manner with which Mr. Fiske deals with 
facts causes his work to have a great and lasting value ^

BOOK NOTES. 31 

In these two volumes may be found not only a narra- 
tive history of the early settlements, but careful inquiries 
into the authenticity of generally accepted or rejected his- 
lorical statements. The story of Capt. John Smith is 
a case in point. The author accepts the romantic story 
of that wonderful man, and certainly gives most excel- 
lent reasons for so doing. After all, the study of his- 
tory does permit some of the romance to stand. The 
interest which the learned historian has shown in presenting 
genealogical facts concerning the promoters and pioneers of 
the -English settlements is justified by the statement that 
genealogy is an important part of history — a statement 
quite in keeping with the spirit of the time. vSuch valuable 
aids to the student of American institutions as the Johns 
Hopkins studies, Bruce's " Economic History of Virginia," as 
well as Brown's "Genesis of the United States," and other 
older and perhaps better known, but not so reliable histori- 
ciil works, are freely quoted or referred to, enabling the 
reader to pursue his investigations more in detail if he 
desires. It is not necessary to dwell upon the rare value 
of these later works of Mr. Fiske, whose popularity as a 
historical writer has come from his ability to present the 
story of the past consistently with the results of modern 
investigation and teaching. 

The " Westward Movement " as told by Mr. Wiusor 
takes up the story of the Scotch-Irish settlement in the west 
of Virginia where Mr. Fiske leaves off. It does more than 
this. The story of the attempts of the pioneers to obtain a 
foothold in the coveted country procuied to the British 
empire by the results of the French wars, and the attempts 
of the government to keep them out ; the establishment of 
the property line ; the concessions gi-anted ; the opening of 
the territory now known as Kentucky and Tennessee, are 
graphically related. 

The influence of the Quebec bill was greatly an aid to the 
development of a spirit of opposition to the home govern- 
ment. The Virginian war (Dunmore's) against the Indians

was a protest against too great a curtailing of colonial terri- 
torial rights. In this book may be found accounts of the 
proposed colonies vv'eist of the Alleghanies, and, as the years 
pass, the actual settlements. The brave part the people of 
this section took in the Revolution and the saving of the 
Western country is told. The cession by the States of their 
territor}^ to the United States made the settlement of the 
Ohio country possible. It is onl}^ of late years that the occu- 
pation and development of the Western country as it then 
was, and the part it has played in colonial and federal times, 
has been studied with a correct appreciation of its real im- 
portance. This book of Mr. Winsor's admirably covers 
the field ; not a section, but the whole field. His task was 
to relate the story, and illustrate the methods and impulses, 
which resulted in enlarging the domain of the Eoglish sea- 
board colonies in 1763, which extended from the Atlantic to 
the head waters of the Ohio, and so along the mountains 
southward, to the greater domain possessed by the United 
States in 1793, when the Mississippi became the western 
limit of the English-speaking Americans. The maps with 
which the book abounds, serve to make every step of the 
narrative clear, and enable one to understand the plans and 
counterplans of the contending forces seeking ownership and 
sovereignty in the west. 

The lamentable and sudden death of Mr. Winsor, so soon 

after the issue of his work from the press, is still fresh in the 
minds of our readers. It need not be written, for all know 
it, that he was not only a most critical historical student 
and the highest authority upon American cartography, but a 
most genial and helpful friend. In the dedication of the 
volume, to Sir Henry W. Dyke Acland, the author expresses 
his sense of kindness received while with the party of Ameri- 
can librarians at the international conference held in London 
the past summer. 

Students of the genealogy and early local history of the 
territory between the Alleghanies and the Mississippi will 
find Mr. Winsor's book of immense aid, for by it may be 
traced the probable course and successive steps by which the 
pioneer families sought their final homes. 



axjBOp, of connbcticut. 



There were four persons of this name early in Connecticut 
. — Timothy and George, brothers, and Thomas and Joseph, 
brothers. What connection existed between these two sets 
of brothers is unknown, but it is surmised that the relation- 
ship was not distant, and that they were, therefore, of the 
same family. 

The identity of Timothy and George is proven beyond 
doubt. Their sister Elizabeth was the wife of Richard 
Baldwin. 

There were others of the name who appear at a slightly 
later date, concerning whose ancestry little or nothing 
is known. 

Perhaps all were of the same great family, for the Derby- 
shire family of this name was an extensive one, and of great 
antiquity. 

The arms illustrated are those recorded by Dugdale in his 
Visitation of Derbyshire in 16G2 and revised in 1663. 

At that date the pedigree recorded in the Visitation shows 
the grandfather, father, brother, and nephew of the Con- 
necticut settlers, Timothy and George. 

This connection is proven by wills proved in England and 
printed by Mr. Waters in his genealogical gleanings. 

The following is a very brief sketch of the family : 

Gamellus de Alsop, assumed as the founder of the family, 
who is described as father of G weuode Alsop, who had a grant 
from William, Lord Ferrers, of the township of Alsop. The 
pedigree then shows, in line of descent, Henry, Richard, 
AVilliam, Ranulph who was living in 1311, another Ranulph 
or the same one, Richard living 1342, Thomas living 1387, 
John living 1412, John living 1441, whose son John was 
the father of Thomas of Alsop in the Dale, and of John.

Descendants of this later John perpetuated the name, as 
apparently did a branch of the family which settled in 
Yorkshire. Thomas Alsop had a son John who married 
twice, and the John Alsop, of London, who died 1610, was 
his grandson by his second wife. 

By his first wife he had George, of Alsop in the Dale, 
who had John, eldest son, Thomas, of Hognaston, and 
Georsre. 

John, the eldest son, was father of Anthony, of Alsop in | 

the Dale, who was living in 1611, with whom the Visitation ^ f 
pedigree begins. He had John, eldest son, who died 1631, | 

married Temperance (daughter of William Gilbert, and who | 

married, second, William Hopkins, of Derby), Ranulph, ? 

Timothy, Thomas, l^ilph, ]\Iarmaduke ; Ann married a I 

Walton ; Sarah and Dorothy married Henry Hopkinson, or J 

Hopkins; John, who married Temperance, died 1631, and | 

had children as follows : t. 

Aotliony, of Alsop, born about 161^. h. 

John, died B.p., 1646, leaving a wife, Mary. | 

Timothy, married Eliza Heires, of Weetou, Co. York, and I 

emigrated to New l^^ngland before 1646. |: 

George, who removed to New England, but left behind his wife ^ 

and two children. He married Dorothy, daughter of William |; 

Bently, of Shirley, Co. Derby. ' | 

If Glover is correct, he had a son John who was born. | 

before 1660 and died soon after 1717. 'i • 

The will of John Alsop, dated 1643, proved 1646, names | 

his mother. Temperance Hopkins, his brother Anthony, Jii's 
two brothers and sister living in Nevj England y and others 
of his relatives, which serve to identify him with John, the 
second son of John, who died 1631. This sister was she 
who, as Elizabeth Alsop, joined the church in Milford, 
Conn., 5 Feb., 1642/3, and who later married Richard 
Baldwin. Her son, Sylvanus Baldwin, had administration 
of the estate of George Alsop in 1679. It is a tradition that 
George Alsop sheltered the regicides Whallcy and GofFe.

Timothy AIsop, in 1646, was a witness in a suit in which 
Joseph A] sop was also a witness. 

Mrs. Elizabeth Kossiter, wife of Bray Eossiter, of Guilford, 
was a sister of Josias Alsop, who names her in his will proved 
in London 1666, and she is also named "as in New England " 
in the will 'of her brother Timothy, of London, in 1664. 
Josias Alsop, who died in 1666, was a clergyman. Perhaps 
Joseph and Thomas, who were brothers, were of this family. 

The settlement of these people in near-by localities, and 
their position in life, tend to confirm the view that a not 
distant relationship existed.

Two distinct families of this name appear in Preston and 
Norwich. Richard Cook, of Stoninolon in 1679, was of 
Norwich in 1680. He had children born at both places. 
His son Obed, born 1681, married Phebc Clarke in 1704,^ 
and had, among others, James, born 8 May, 1708. James 
married Elizabeth Tracy in 1732. 

John Cook had land in Preston, given him by his father 
Stephen (son of Gregory), of Newton, in 1715. John's wife 
was Ruth Barton ; his brother was Samuel Cook, of Wind- 
ham. Among other children, John had, at Preston, James, 
1 Jan., 1716/17, who married Rebecca, daughter of John 
Larabce, of Norwich, 9 Oct., 1739. James was "junior" 
and "captain." His will was made 18 April, 1775, and 
proved 22 June, 1778.

It is through the kindness of the rector of Wem, Rev.

of John and Sutton Baily, of Newport, born before 1690. He 
received land in Xewport in 1733, from his father's estate. 
It is possible that John may have been the son of Edward 
and Frances Bailey,* of Newport and Tiverton ; but I think 
not. John Bailey, Senr., speaks of Benjamin, son of John, 
to receive £50 w^hen of aoe.

ye 62 year of her age." She married her cousin, a Coe of 
Casco Bay, one of three sons of an uncle who settled there. 
This marriage and the name of her husband cannot be 
found, because of the destruction of the records. He went 
to sea and was lost, and she returned to her father's house 
with her only child, Ruth. She was admitted to the church 
on her return to Little Compton, Oct. 1, 1730, and her dau.

At the time of his father's death he was in Casco Bay. 
After a time he returned and was a shoemaker, going from 
house to house, as was customary in those days, taking the

Taylor's, he saw Rebecca, a mere child, and made her her 
first pair of shoes. He said, " I will wait for her," and he 
married her when she was 21."

3. Jonathan Hubbard, son of John and Mary Hubbard, I 

was born in Weathersfield, Conn., Jan. 3, 1059. He | 

must have been a hid when he went to Concord, Mass., to | 

live with his uncle, Robert Merriam, as is shown by this \ 

passage in his uncle's will, Dec. 10, 1G81 : "I bequeath j 

to my cosen, Jonathan Flubbard, who lives with nie, 20 | 

shillino^s." Mrs. Mary (Sheafe) Merriam, widow of Robert . I 

Merriam, in her Avill of Feb. 11, 1686-7, says: "1 give f 

my cosen, Jonathan Hubbard, who lives in my house, all I 

my housings and lands in Concord wliich my late husband | 

gave me and the meadow I bought of Jolm Miller, and the | 

wood lot." She also bequeaths to " my brother, Jacob | 

Sheafe's daughter." Robert Memam had married Mary, f 

daughter of Edmund Sheafe, of Cranbrook, Co. Kent, | 

Eng., where she was baptized Sept. 20, 1620. On their | 
arrival in New Enijland they first settled in Charlestown, 
Mass. ; thence removed to Concord. Her brother, Jacob 
Sheafe, was in Weathersfield, Conn., and on the purchase 
of his lands by George Hulibard, he removed to Boston, 
Mass. The fact of this purchase and that Mrs. Mary 
(Sheafe) INIerriam gave all her lands in Concord to her 
nephew, Jonathan Hubbard, seems to point to Mary, wife 
of John and mother of Jonathan Hu])bard, as coming from 
the Sheafe rather than the Merriam family. 

This estate inherited by Jonathan Hubbard "lay near the 

meeting house." His wiU was dated in Concord, Aug, 5, | 

1724, and was carried into Middlesex Probate Court, Nov. f 

25, 1728. He gave his wife, Hannah, the east end of his I 

house, and made provisions for her comfortable maintenance I

Sarah, and gave all his remainiDg estate to his son Ebenezer, 
in Concord, "lying near the meeting house." His will was 
probated June 16, 1755. 

Ebenezer Hubbard married Mary, daughter of Samuel and 
Mary (Barron) Billings, who was born Aug. 16, 1704. He 
died May 21, 1755, and she mai-ried (2d) June 6, 1759, 
Lieut. Andrew Conant. She died Nov. 30, 1763, and was 
buried beside her first husband in the Hill Cemetery, in Con- 
cord. They had children : 

1. Ebenezer, b. Mar. 1, 1725-6.

5. Ebenezer Hubbard, son of Ebenezer and Mary (Bil- 
lings) Hubbard, was born in Concord, March 1, 1725. Ac- 
cording to his father's will, he lived on the homestead. During 
the Revolution he was active and patriotic. As every man 
and boy in Concord "turned out" on the alarm of the coming 
of the British from Lexington, April 19, 1775, he necessarily 
was one of those who gathered with the militia, or who took 
careful aim at the " red-coats " from behind the old stone 
walls or sheltering trees. He drove his wagon to Boston 
to obtain supplies. His house was used for storage, and one 
end of it was pulled out when the English soldiers raided the 
town, and the flour was poured into the roadway. His will 
was drawn May 10, 1804. He made ample provision for 
his wife, Hannah, and she was to care for their sou, Samuel, 
" who was incapable." He gave his silver tankard to his 
grandson, Ebenezer, son of his son, the Rev. Ebenezer 
Hubbard, of Marblehead, Mass., then deceased; after his 
wife's death, he bequeathed the Concord homestead to his 
grandson Ebenezer, his son David's sou, on condition that 



. ' .' I 



■ GEORGE HUBBARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 53 

this grandson should assume the charge of his uncle Samuel 
"as long as he lived.". Feb. 4, 1807, he added a codicil on 
the death of his wife, willed the great clock, family Bible, 
and estate to his grandson, Ebenezer, " son of his son 
David," if said grandson should " care for his uncle Samuel 
acceptably to Tilly Mirick," one of the executors of the will. 
He gave his son Joseph $15; his son David $24; his son 
Samuel a bed, a silver spoon marked "S. E.," and the "clock 
which stands in the north room." To his son Joseph, in lieu 
of the legacy before mentioned, $50 ; the rest of the estate to 
be divided equally between his daughters. The inventoiy 
was taken Oct. 15, 1807, which names his homestead near 
the meeting-house, dwelling-house, barn, out-buildings, and 
adjacent land, with land near the mill, about 30 acres, the 
saAv-mill lot in the uorlii of Concord of GO acres, and 130 
acres in the south part of the town. 

This estate was the same as that which the first of the name, 
Jonathan Hubbard, owned, who built his house in 1G70, 
being one of the nineteen settlers who incorporated the 
town, and in this house the first religious services were 
held. He became town treasurer and selectman. At the 
time of Jonathan's decease he owned some six hundred acres 
of land. Both land and ofiices were held bv his son Eben- 
ezer, who transmitted the homestead Ipt to his son, Ebenezer, 
2d. This house is the only one drawn on the map of the 
battle of Lexington. 

Ebenezer Hub})ard married, in Lexington, Mass., May 7, 
1752, Hannah, daughter of Joseph and Hannah (Bowman) 
Estabrook, who was born in Lexington, Oct. 6, 1731 : died 
in Concord, Jan. 27, 1807; he died Oct. 1, 1807, in

At the death of Ebenezer Hubbard, the old homestead, by 
his will, went to his grandson, Ebenezer Hubbard, son of 
his sou David and Mary Barrett, on conditions which were 
evidently fulfilled, and the house was iiext owned and occu- 
pied by David's son, Ebenezer, who took much delight in the 
ancestral home, where his ancestors had entertained General 
Washington, and had shown warm patriotism in the troublous 
times. Ebenezer on his death left a will in which he be- 
queathed the first money for the Concord statue of the 
Minute Man — unveiled at the Concord Centennial. The 
house was then torn down, the farm sold, and Hubbard 
street runs through it. His cousin Ebenezer at Oshkosli was 
one of his legatees. 

Joseph Hubbakd, son of Ebenezer and Hannah (Esta- 
brook) Hubbard, was born in Concord, January 11, 1769 ; 
he resided in his father's house after his marriage for some 
years; then, with his wife and three children, removed to 
Fail-field, Me. He married in Sudbury, Mass., — marriage 
intention published in Concord, August 9, 1796, — Jane 
Moore, of Sudbury, who was born in Sudbury- , August 21, 
1773, and died in Canaan, Me., Jan. 28, 1869, aged 95 years \ 
he died in Canaan, June 2G, 1850, aged 81 years.

Ebenezer Hubbard, son of Joseph and Jane (Moore) 
Hubbard, was born in Canaan, Me., Feb. 26, 1807 ; he early 
went to Lincoln, Me. , and engaged in lumber business. After 
his marriage he started for the western part of the United 
States and settled at Oshkosh, which was then merely a pai-t 
of prairie land, when but a few houses had been built — when 
there were not roads, churches, nor school-houses ; it was 
simply a settlement of a few enterprising men who desired 
more acres than they could compass in their Eastern homes. 
Here he built a saw-mill on the southei*n bank of the Fox 
river, invested the money which he brought from the East, in 
pine lands, paying for his farm lands $1.25 per acre, invest- 
ing the profits from his mill in bank stock and the like secur- 
ities. During his life the prairie became a large and thriving 
city of thirty thousand people. 

Ebenezer Hubbard married in Lincoln, Me., Mary 
Thompson, daughter of Charles and Martha Thompson, who 
was born Brooktield, Me. ; died in Escambia, Florida, 
January 17, 1891 ; Ebenezer died at Oshkosh, April 30,

PUTNAM. 



PUTNAM OF BUCKING-HAMSHIRB, ENGLAND, 

AND SALEM, MASS. 



Arras, — Sable crusilly-fitchee argent, a stock of the last. 

Crest. — A wolfs head gules. 

The principal family bearing this name originated in 
Puttenham, Hertfordshire, the lands in their possession 
giving the name to the family. It is not known who the 
first of this family to possess Puttenham, or land there, was. 

Ancient records mention Simon and Ralph de Putteham 
in 1199, and during the succeeding century appear the 
names of Kaipb, llichard, John, Peter, and Thomas Putten- 
ham, all of this neighborhood, and in the case of John and 
Peter owning lands in Puttenham. 

It is probable that Thomas Puttenham, living in the time 
of Edward 1. (1272-1307), who married Helen, the 
daughter and co-heiress of John Spigorneil, was the 
earliest known ancestor of the race, but the descent cannot 
be proven in a direct Line beyond AVilliam Puttenham of 
Puttenham and Penn. He married Margaret, the daughter 
of John de Warbleton of Warbleton in Sussex, Sherfield in 
Hants., etc., and through which ma Tiage those places came 
in the possession of their son, Plenry Putnam. (1408- 
1473.) 

The eldest line of the family resided at Sherfield. The 
Puttenham, Herts., property passed out of the famil}^ in the 
time of Richard Puttenham, the grandson of Sir George 
Puttenham, and heir to his uncle, the famous Sir Richard 
Elliott. 

George Puttenham, the author of the " Arte of English 
Poesie," was a brother of Richard. This branch of tlie 
family became extinct in 1597, at the death of Richard. 

The Putnams of Penn, representatives of the third son of 

(65) 



66 pi:tnam of Buckinghamshire, England. 

William (1430-1492), a grandson of AVilliam who married 
Margaret Warbleton, Nicholas,* became extinct, in 1601, in 
the person of another Eichard Putnam. 

Both the above Putnam families are described hi the 
Visitations, 

Nicholas Putnam, of Penn, had, besides his son and 
heir, John, a son, Henry, who was living in 1526. 

Henry's eldest son was probably Richard Putnam, of 
Eddlesboro and Woughton, who died in 1556, leaving eld- 
est son John, of Wingrave. The latter died in 1573, 
leaving a son Nicholas who was the father of John Putnam, 
bapt. 17 Jan., 1579, who inherited land in Aston Abbots, 
and was livincr there at the time of his mioration about 1640. 
There his children were baptized, and an entry made on the 
Salcin records by Thomas, the eldest son, states that John 
came from Aston Abbots in Buckinghamshire. 

The family in Wingrave were yeomen, but held consider- 
able property, which was largely increased after the settle- 
ment in Salem. The emigrants were stern Puritans. No 
instance of the use of coat armor by John Putnam nor any 
of his three sons, Lt. Thomas, Capt. Nathaniel, nor Capt. 
John Putnam, is known. 

During the Revolution Judge James Putnam of Worcester, 
a 3^ounger brother of Dr. Ebenezer Putnam of Salem, great- 
grandsons of Capt. John, adhe^-ed to the Loyalist cause and 
retired to London. Afterward he settled in New Brunswick, 
where he occupied high judicial positions. His sou, James, 
was a friend of the Duke of Kent and one of his trustees. 
The last representative of this line died in London within a 
few years. 

In the College of Heralds is a pedigree of the family en- 
tered by James Putnam in 1803, who obtained a confirma- 
tion of the following arms : 

Sable a stork argent, beaked and legged gules, within an 
orle of eight crosslets fitchee or, on a chief embattled of the

second, a roman fasces in fess, proper. Crest — A wolf's 
head couped at the neck, per fess embattled, gules and or. 

The Penn family used the Putnam arms quartered with 
those of AYarbleton — Lozengy, or and azure. 

The Sherfield family used the Putnam arms alone, and 
those are what are shown in the illustration. 

Harleian Mss., 6137, in the British Museum, contains 
rolls of arms in the latter part of the 13th century, and 
among them are the Putnam arms. 

The only other arms known to the writer bearing the 
same charges as Putnam occur in the same Mss. They are 
jis follows : Gules, a heron argent between crosses crosslet 
or, and are ascribed to William Herun. 

For further particulars see " History of the Putnam Family 
in England and America," by Eben Putnam. 

Note. — An entirely ditfereut coat of arms is sometimes claimed by members of the 
Patnam family. It is supposed the error originated by Putnam settlers in New York 
State finding a coat of arras in posses^iion of Putmans there, who were of Dutch de- 
scent. The boars' head? were never borne by a Putnam, and though the coat closely 
re»embles the arms of the family of Gough it is supposed to be of Dutch origin.

72 ELIZABETH PABODIE AND DESCENDANTS. 

. "Hon. Gamaliel Bradford was a son of Lieut. Samuel 
Bradford, and great-grandson of Hon. William, the second 
Governor of Plvmouth Colonv. He shared Inr^'ely in all 
the duties of the public offices of the town, and was always 
selected to bear the responsibilities of its important agencies. 
He was a friend of education, and did much towards the 
maintenance and improvement of the public schools. He 
for several years represented the town in the Legislature, 
and during the trying period from 1764 to 1770 was a 
member of the Executive Council. He was for manv years 
a justice of the peace, and judge of the County Court. He 
also held command of the company of militia in his native 
town, and about 1750 was raised to the rank of Major, and 
afterwards promoted to the command of the regiment with 
the rank of Colonel. In his declining dn^'s he witnessed with 
patriotic ardor the uprising of the Sons of Freedom ; and 
though his heart was with them, he was unable by active 
exertion to assist in the crowning glories of true-born free- 
men. He died in Duxbury on the 24th April, 1778, having 
nearly reached his seventy-fourth year. — Windsor's History 
of Duxbury^ pp. 14 8 ^ 9. 

66. Benjamen ^ South worth (Kebecca ^ Pabodie, Eliz.^ 
Alden). Born April 18, 1681, I tliink in Bristol. The 
South Avorth family did not come directly from Duxbury, 
but tarried awhile in Bristol. The children are entered on 
Little Compton Records, also on Bristol Records. I think 
nearly all of Rebecca Pabodie's children were born in Bristol. 
There is no record of either William or Rebecca joining the 
Little Compton Church, or the baptism of their children, 
until we come to Andrew and Gideon, the children of the 
second wife. Therefore, Bristol is given as the birthplace. 
I do not know whether Benjamen or his third wife died in 
Little Compton. Many stones are broken off in Old 
Cemetery. He was in Little Compton till after 1730. I 
feel sure his children moved away, probably to Connecticut,

and are the ancestors of many Southworths we find in Mans- 
field, Ashford, and elsewhere. About 1730 three, at least, 
of his brothers went to Connecticut. He was married, first, 
by Joseph Church, Esq., Dec. 18, 1701, to Elizabeth Wood- 
worth, probably daughter of Walter Woodworth. Her stone 
can be seen in the Old Cemetery — " Elizabeth, wife of Benja- 
inen Southworth. Died June 18, 1713, in ve 35th vear of 
her age." He married, second, by Rev. Richard Billings, in 
Little Compton, March 14, 1717, Alice Church. She was 
daughter of Joseph -^ Church (Joseph,^ Richard^) and Grace 
(Shaw) Church, born in Little Compton, Feb. 8, 1693 ; died 
"Feb. 14, 1718, in the 23d year of her age" (gravestone 
in Old Cemetery). He married, third, Susanna (Palmer) 
Blackman, by the Rev. Richard Billings, July 18, 1722. I 
feel Mire she uasa widow. There is no Susanna to be found 
in the Blackman family, and William Palmer in his will 
speaks of daughter Susanna Southworth. (See Richmond 
genealogy, by Joshua Richmond.) This genealogy sa^'s 
William Pahuer married Mary ^ Richmond ( Edward, - 
John'), and had a family in Kingston or AVesterly. We 
do not find the children on these towns' records, but do find 
them in Little Compton. William Palmer was son of 
William Palmer, of Dartmouth, and he son of the first 
William, of Plymouth and Duxbury. Susanna was born, 
I think, in Dartmouth, Oct. 24, 1G92.

Richard Billings, April 20, 1710. She was the daughter 
of Joseph and Martha (Kirkland) Blague, born 27 Aug., 
1692, in Saybrook, where her parents lived for a while. 
Mary (Blake) Southworth is buried in the Old Cemetery. 
"In memory of Mary, wife of Joseph Southworth, who died 
October 29, 1770, in ye 79th year of her age." And next 
to them is the stone " In memory of John, son of Captain 
Joseph Southworth and Mary his wife, died Aug. ye 12, 
1720, in ye 24th year of his age." I think I read the year 
wrong (the stone is badly broken). I think it ought to be 
1710 ; and this John was their youugest. Otherwise, he was - 
not recorded with the rest of the children. Joseph South- 
worth lived all his life in Little Compton. In 1722 he buys 
land from his brother Thomas. March 9, 1727, Samuel, 
Stephen, and Thomas sell to their brother Joseph their share 
of their father's homestead. In Little CoDipton what is 
known as the "Mash" (marsh) road marks the northern 
boundary of the old Southwoilh place ; from that south to 
the ocean is known to this day as the '^ Southard Marsh." 
Gradually it was divided up nmong the descendants. 

The site of the old house is kn :)wn ; the cellar is there on 
the George Peckham place. Farther over, the well on the 
Gideon Southworth place can be discerned. Joseph South- 
worth's widow Mary and his son Constant were made 
administrators on his estate. The executors sell land in 
1745.

fault in giving John Palmer's children as born in Kingston 
or Westerly ; or if born there, came early to Little Comp- 
ton. John Palmer and Elizabeth his wife, and children 
John, Sarah, Elizabeth, Edward, Job, Aaron, and Anne 
were baptized Nov. 1, 1700, in company with others to the 
number of sixty-live, preliminary to forming the church in 
1708. The Richmond genealogy says John was son of 
Henry ; this Henry was son of the first William. I do not 
find Edward or his wives on the church records ; neither do 
I find at Taunton, before 1745, any sales of land indicating

alive when her father died. David Little made his will Feb. 
12, 1750. "I, David Little, of Scituate, yeoman, having 
arrived at old age." He speaks of son Ephraim, son David 
Little, son Nathaniel Little, daughter Elizabeth Otis, 
dauefhter Marv Cudworth, daupfhter Mercv Otis, son Bar- 
nabas Little, who was executor, and to have certain property, 
provided he does for David's wife Abigail what he (David) 
covenanted before marriage. (He guards the right of the 
wife so carefully, I feel sure she was a stepmother to the 
children.) Codicil, Jan. 12, 1754, names son Nathaniel, 
deceased, and his children to have his share. The will was 
witnessed by Thomas Pierce, Ezra Pitcher, and Elizabeth 
Pitcher, but when the will was proved in 1779 all were dead 
but Elizabeth Pitcher.

Of the Higginsous of Weoi, the first person of whom we 
liave actual knowledge is William, the lather of Richard 
Higginson, who w^as a freeholder in 1561. That W^illiam 
^ay be, and very likely was, identical with William Higgin- 
son of 'Wem whose wiU was proved in 1542. 

In the will, sons Thomas, William, and Allen are named ; 
i>ut it was not uncommon to omit mention of the eldest son, 
^to came into possession of lands by right. 



,'«« I!?, ■ 



\ 



84 THE HIGGINSONS IN ENGLAND AND AMERICA. 

There appears another, and probably younger, William, 
whose will was proved in 1552, and who names but one 
son, Alan. I do not doubt but that this latter William had 
other SODS. 

In 1561, Richard Higginson, the son of* William, held 
lands in Cotton by one tenth of a knight's fee which he had 
inherited fi'om his father, and Allen held Woodend Hall and 
a large copyhold estate there. (Garbet.) 

The name Allen a})pears to have been common among 
these Wem Higginsons. One Allen was buried in 1594, 
another, of Tilstocke, in Oct., 1597, and a third Allen, " the 
clerke," was buried 13 April, 1597. Allen, the clerk, I 
think identical with Allen, the clerk, who is a witness to the 
will of Tliomas Higginson, of Berkeswell, in 1573, and who 
is pro)jal)l3^ the same as the " cozen Allen Higginson '* men- 
tioned by the testator. 

By reference to the wills of the Berkeswell Higginsons, to 
follow, it appears that Allen, the clerk, was the son of John 
Higginson, of Cotton, and at the time of the making of his 
will was dwellino- in Cotton in Wem. 

As the earliest Hii^^i^insons of Wem of whom we have 
definite knowledge, i.e., the two Williams above and their 
families, were contemporaries of John Higginson of Berkes- 
well who died in 1540, it is probable that the \VHIiams of 
AYera and John of Berkeswell stood in the some near deii,ree 
of relotionship. The presence of two of the sons of John in 
Wem, and the mention of the niece, a daughter of a deceased 
brother living there, as well as the numerical preponderance 
of persons bearing the name in Wem over Berkeswell at that 
early date, is abundant proof that the Berkeswell Higgin- 
sons came out of Salop, not the latter from Warwickshire. 

The Cotton HitJ^ginsons and the Berkeswell Hioxrinsons 
appear to have enjoyed about the same social and financial 
position. Both families were connected with the gentry, 
though styling themselves yeomen. 

It is among the ancestors of the Higginsons of Cotton in 



'. ;/ 



THE HIGGINSONS IN ENGLAND AND AMERICA. 85 

Wein that one may expect to find the ancestor of the Berkes- 
weJl family. 

Garbet says that an estate in Tilley in Wem, ^\■hioh for- 
merly belonged to the Donnes, passed in 1561 to John and 
(reorge Higginson. 

Kobert Hisfojinson, the irrandson of John, was concerned 
with many of the inhabitants of Wem in an attempt to estab- 
lish their ancient privileges against the purchaser. of the 
manor, one Daniel Wvcherlv. The case was lost, it was 
thought, through the treacheiy of the attorney and the burn- 
ing of valuable papers. This was in 1683, after ten years of 
litigation. Higginson lost heavily. The last representative 
ot' this line died in 1747. He wasted his paternal estate by 
a wild life. 

Another branch of the family was settled at Cranmore, a 
pai-t of the lords domain, in Edstatston. It came to them in 
the time of James I. To this family belonged George of 
Cromar who died in 1624. He w^as succeeded by his brother 
Richard. 

A Mr. Kichard Ili^":inson was one of the feofees of the 
school in Wem. 

Ashhouse in Edstatston was a copyhold estate in posses- 
sion of the Higginsons for years. <Tohn possessed it during 
the legal contest alcove mentioned. 

The several branches of the family in Wem Avere in good 
circumstances and among the most substantial people in the 
place.

CURWSH OF SALEM, LIASS. 



Arms : Argent, fretty Gules, a chief Azure (but in the 
illustration a fret and mascle) . 

Crest : An Unicorn's head erased Argent, armed Or. 

Motto : Sije n'estoy. 

The arms presented in this issue are those of the Curwens, 
of Salem. They are similar to those borne by the Cur- 
wens of Workington, in Cumberland, and allied families in 
Lancashire and Yorkshire. The Lancashire family, which 
is of considerable antiquity, has not been actually proven to 
ho of the snme blood as those of Cumberland. The latter 
are an ancient family descended from Saxon and Scottish 
monarchs. It was to one of that fomily, Sir Henry Curwen, 
to whom Mary, Queen of Scots, surrendered herself. 

The ancestry of the New England family has not been 
traced to either of the principal branches of the family in 
England. The history of many of the sons in those families 
is unknown. 

All that is known of the origin of the Salem family is 
what the eminent genealogist, Mr. IT. F. Waters, discovered. 
He found that John Curwin, named in an ancient pedigree 
in possession of the family as the lather of George, Thomas, 
and Matthias Corwin, the emigrants to America, died in 
1631, leaving a will, dated 14 May, 1631, in which those 
sons and several daui]ihters are named. 

He was a resident in Sibbertoft, on the northern border of 
Northamptonshire, and left a wife, Margery. 

There evidently was a family of Curwins in Sibbei'toft as 
early as the middle of the sixteenth century. 

The right to armorial honors for the New England family- 
rests upon the use of the arms at a very early date and the 
possession of a seal ring which belonged to Capt. George

Coi'^dn, the emigrant. This ring is still in existence. The 
arms are those of the ancient English family. It is almost 
ccrtair; that Geors-c Corwin * brought those arms ^vith him 
in 1638, when he was but twenty-eight years old, and it is 
not at all likely that a young man without property (his 
fortune came from his wife) would have thought of or 
presumed to have a seal ring cut. If we dismiss the assump- 
tion that he was the one who had the ring made and accept 
the theory that he brought it with him, then it foUow^s he 
had it from his father or some other relative. It is not 
likely that his father, a husbandman, assumed the arms. 
The ring, which is reproduced herewith, is of ancient design. 
It is the belief of the writer that it came to Geor<>:e Corwin 
from some relative of his father who was entitled to use 
the arms. The crc?:cont-in-chief. the sis^n of a younoer 
branch, does not appear till a later generation. 

Considerable space has been devoted to this case for the 
reason that it is the intention of the editor to include in this 
series onlv coats of arms riirbtfully borne by* American 
families. When, as in the present case, there is no written 
evidence of the descent of the fii'st possessor of the arms 
in America from an armorial family, the editor will give his 
reasons for admitting the claim to armorial bearings. 

A T^su)iU of the evidence in the case is presented below, 
principally taken from the "Heraldic Journal." 

The motto is peculiar and interesting — Si je n'estoy. It 
is an ancient French phrase in heraldic use, and freely 
translated would be " See if I do not my jpart,^^ 

The family is represented in New England and the West. 

I. (1G75.) The following is a memorandum, from a MS. 
by Daniel Ward, of Salem : 

" Salem, July 28"S 1802. Then I bought of Col. Benjamin 
Pickman a ring which belonged to George Curwin, and was 
on his finger at the time he was taken in portrait about 1675. 

* Curwen is evidently tlic correct foiin of the name ; tlie spelling Corwin appears 
about the end of the 17th century.

It has the arms of the family of Curwin, and is of very 
antient fashion." 

II. (1688-9.) George Curwin, sheriff of Essex count}^ 
J sou of John, and gTandson of George the emigrant, left an 

impression upon wax on a deed signed by him dated March 
21^*, 1688-9. This deed is signed very distinctly " George 
Curwen." 

III. (1690-1.) Another impression of the same, on a 
deed by the same grantor, dated Jan. 27, 1690. He writes 
his name, in this instance, " George Cor win." 

IV. (1690.) A still better impression of another seal. 
It bears the crescent-in-chief. The deed to which this seal 
is affixed was executed by Hon. Jonathan Corwin, son of the 
first George, and a magistrate and citizen of distinction. It 
is dated ir)th Sept., 1690. Tliis is probably Judge Jonathan 
Corwin's ring. He, being the second son, has the crescent. 

V. (1698.) A pen-and-ink drawing in a MS. in the 
eollection of the American Antiquarian Society, at Worcester, 
of the arms of Curwen impaling Sheaf; signed, " Geo. Cur- 
win, 1698." He was son of Jonathan, above named. The 
sketch was made, probably, while he was a student at Cam- 
bridge. 

VI. (1714-15.) A portrait of the Eevd. George Curwen 
last named, taken in clerical (?) garments. As he was 
ordained assistant pastor of the First Church in Salem, in 
1714, and died 23 Xov., 1717, his portrait must have been 
painted at some time between those years. This picture 
was cleaned and rebacked about 1865, which process brought 
to light the Curwen anus in their proper colors thereon, 
^'ith the cresceut-in-chicf. 

VII. (1755.) A fragment of still another seal bearing 
the same arms, on the back of a letter of June 16, 1755, 
from several Cor wins in Xew Jersey, to Samuel Curwen of 
Salem. This letter contains 2:enealo£rical facts establishing 
the connection of the families in Salem and New Jersey.

stituted for the fret and mascle of the older seal hereinbefore 

noticed. These arms were cut by " Jno. Barnes, Coventry 

St., London," for Samuel Curwen above mentioned. The 

original seal is lost, but the artist's proof is still preserved in 

a box labelled with his name and number as given above. 

This artist's proof is now in the possession of Geo. E. 1 

Curwen, of Salem. | 

IX. In addition to the foresfoin^z", a silver seal bearins: I 

the Curwen arms, without the crescent, is now in the posses- I 

sion of James Dana Curwen, of North Andover, and grand- • | 
son of James Barr Curwen, of Salem, who formerly owned I 

it. This was found amono; the effects of Samuel Curwen I 

above named, at his decease in 1802. Its age is not known, | 

but it has the appearance of quite an old seal. | 

The descendants of John Curwen, son of George, the first I 

of the name here, in Lincoln, la., have a seal ring with the | 

arms of Curwen upon it. Impressions from this seal, and a f 

photograph of it, which is here shown, prove identical I 

with the impressions made by George, the sheriff, on J 

the deeds (1688-9) (1690-91), and must have been made | 

by the same seal when it was in Salem. The tradition in I 

the Iowa family is that it belonged to George Curwen, | 

their first ancestor of the name in this country, and that a ' 

George Curwen had always owned it since. The present I 

owner is a George. Is it not likely that this ring is " The . ^ 

Gold Ring " mentioned in the settlement of Geoi'ge Cur- ^ 

wen's estate? 

George Curwen, the emigrant, was born Dec. 10, 1610. ] 

Came to Salem in 1638, and died there Jan. 3, 1685. His 
first wife was Elizabeth White, widow of John White and 
daughter of John and Dorothea Herbert. His second wife 
was Elizabeth Brook, widow of Robert Brook and daughter 
of Gov. Edward Winslow, of Plymouth Colony. 

His portrait, which was painted about 1675, is no\v in the 
possession of George R, Curwen, of Salem, together with 
the cane and lace bands in which he was painted. There

was always a tradition in the family that George Curwen, 
the emio:rant, broas^ht a rins: from Ens^land with the arms of 
the Curwen family of Workington Hall, Cumberland County, 
England, upon it. 

In the settlement of the estate of Capt. George Curwen, 
in 1685, some papers in Boston, also copies of the same in 
the rooms of the American Antiquarian Society in Worces- 
ter, contain copies of division of his estate between his 
widow and his children, she being his second wife; widow 
of his son eTohn ; and William Browne, Esq., w^ho married 
his daughter Hannah. 

The widow and her children have certain articles of plate 
and mone3^ 

Margaret, widow of his son John (the eldest son), has 
certain articles of plate and money, also part of "the Gold 
Ring," valued at 00.03.02. 

William Brown, Jr., certain articles of plate, also pail 
of ^^the Gold King," valued at 00.03.02. . , . ,,

was born in Combe St. Nicholas, Somersetshire, Eng., Dec. 
21, 1608. He married, first, March 17, 1629, Agnes Combe. 
lie married, second, Jane Ilaviland, \vho was the mother of 
Samuel and Joseph. He married, third, the daughter of 
Edward Frye. In 1640 he came to New England and 
brought with him his third wife and Samuel, born 1632, and 
Joseph, 1638. He settled in Weymouth. He was deputy 
to the General Court, and was clerk for many years. As 
part payment for services rendered, the General Court gave 
him and others a very large tract of land in what is no^v 
Mendon and Mil ford, Mass. 

Children born in "^Vey mouth : Noomi, born Dec. 3, 1641 ; 
Mary, born Dec. 3, 1642; Micajah, born Oct. 12, 1643; 
married Susanna. He died Jan. 20, 1710. Josiah, about 
1645; Judith, born al)Out 1647; Angel, boiii about 1650; 
married Hannah. Capt. Josiah married Sarah (Wilson) 
Batts. He lived in Milford as well as Medfield ; removed to 
Bristol, 1706, then to Barrington, 1717, and was there till 
about 1726; thence to Mansfield, Conn., where he died 
Oct. 30, 1732. (I think Margaret Torrey, who married 
Caleb Church (Joseph, Joseph, Kichard) was his daughter.) 
We know he had Mary, born April 17, 1689 ; John, 
April 4, 1692. Mr. Horace F. Currier sent me most of 
these facts in regard to the Torreys, and I think they are 
so valuable I insert them here. Mary (Torrey) South- 
woilh survived her husband and married again — whom we 
do not know — and lived in Mansfield. Her second husband 
was a mill-owner. 

The Southworth genealogy states that Nathaniel South- 
worth, who went to Mansfield, was son of Nathaniel (son of 
Constant), who married Desire Gray. According to Davis^ 
''Landmarks of Plymouth," this Nathaniel married Jael How- 
land and lived at Middleboro. Nathaniel Southworth, of 
Middleboro, sells land received from his grandfather, 
Edward Graj^, through his mother, Desire Gray. He also 
names brother Ichabod,

Nathaniel Southworth, No. 72, styling himself as of Little 
Compton, wheelwright, buys land in Bristol. Then, 'as of 
Bristol, buys land in jMansficld. In 1722 he sells to brother 
Joseph his share of homestead of honored father, William 
Southworth, of Little Compton. In 1730 was lost at sea on 
a voyage to the Mediterranean. At that time his son Con- 
stant was nine months old. 

Thomas Southworth, of Middlesex, was not a son of No. 72. 

Children born in Bristol : 

394. Nathaniel' Southworth, bom Feb. 13, 1714-15; bap- 

tized Oct. 2, 1715. 

395. William Southworth, born Jan. 9, J 716-7; baptized 

Oct. 27, 1717. 

396. Josiah Southworth, born Sept. 4, 1719. 

Nathaniel Southworth went to Mansfield in 1720. On 
Mans6eld records we find : 

397. John Southworth, born Sept. 10, 1721. 

398. Joseph Southworth, born Aug. 16, 1724. 

399. Constant Southworth, born April 15, 1730. 

73. Thomas^ South woilh (Kebecca^ Pabodie, Eliz.^ 
Alden). Born Dec. 13, 1694; married in Little Compton, 
b}^ Rev. Richard Billings, Patience Thurston, daughter of 
Jonathan and Sarah Thurston. She was born Feb. 16, 
1702. Her father gives to granddaughter, Rebecca South- 
worth, in 1735, "£20 and all household stuff that belonged 
tocher mother, Patience." I think the mother died soon 
after the birth of her daughter : 

400. Rebecca'* Southworth. 

We know the children of all the brothers of Thomas and 
all his cousins, yet there appear several that are not 
accounted for, especially in Ashford, the next town to 
Mansfield. I think Thomas married again, wxnt to Con- 
necticut, and had other chiklren. I place them here. 
Thomas, it would seem, finally went to Middlesex, N.J.

ELIZABETH PABODIE AND DESCENDANTS. 105 

According to tradition a Thomas went to Middlesex, N.J., 
and had four sons at least : William, afterwards in Bridge- 
water, N.Y. Joseph, also went to Xew York. There was a 
Samuel, of Mansfield, who married an Aspinwall. In the 
Eevolutionarj War there was a Thomas from Ashford, 
Conn. For the present, therefore, I insert as children by 
second wife : 

401. Samuel '^ South worth.

1725), by Rev. Richard Billings, Jan. 27, 1725-6, 
Lydia Warren. She was, perhaps, one of the descendants of 
Richard Warren who went to Dartmouth and Freetown. 
Stephen Southworth sold his laud in Little Compton in 
1727. He went to Freetown, but May 16, 1733, he sells 
his land in Freetown to Ephraim Elsbm-g, calling himself of 
Little Compton, and March 17, 1737-8, sells more land in 
Freetown to Joseph Borden. Children on Freetown

I THE HiaGIX^TBONS Ul ENGLAHD AND 

i AMERICA, 



(^Continued from, page 85.) 

From the lists for Salop, of disclaimers to the right to 
bear arms, in 1664, were Richard Higginson, of Wem, and 
Thomas Higginson, of North Gate street, Chester. 

The evidence of the list of disclaimers would seem to show 
that the Wem Higginsons were not armigerous. But it is 
not proof that they could not have proved their right. 

Unfortunately at the date of these disclaimers, 1664, the 
practices of the heralds were not above suspicion. They 
were very apt to incur the resentment of the persons sum- 
moned to prove their claims to coat annor. So strong was 
the local feeling in some places, that the heralds were pre- 
suming upon their position, that in some cases monuments 
tlefaced of armorial bearings by the heralds were immediately 
repaired. The names of persons disclaimed include many 
who could have proved their right, but who would not. The 
greater number, however, are of persons who sought to 
obtain honors to which thev had no lej^jal claim. The case 
to a certan extent was very likely analogous with the posi- 
tion taken by some American families at the present day 
>\ho insist upon using arms upon traditionary evidence 
solely. It is also more than probable that in some cases 
I>crsons were summoned who had never claimed coat annor ; 
the names of the more wealthy persons of a town being 
taken, perhaps in the hope that rather than be disclaimed 
they would pray for a gi-ant of arms and so enrich the 
heralds. 

As this record is a century and a half later than the prob- 
*^>le date of the separation of the Wem and Berkeswcll 
*amilies, it can have little value in throwing light upon the 

(117)

origin of the arms in use by the Salem Higginsons at a very 
early date, and which will be described later. 

THE BEKKESW^ELL HIGGINSONS. 

Berkeswell was anciently spelled Berghewell. It is now 
in the diocese of Worcester. It is about six miles west of 
Coventry and a like distance north-west of Kenil worth. 

There is a church there ancient and interesting, but 
unfortunately the registers do not commence till 1653. 

Stoneleigh is about four miles east of Kenilworth and 
ten miles south-east of Berkeswell. 

In October, 1538, Robert Bocher and wife Elizabeth 
obtain a grant of certain lands in Stonely, and also lands ' 
called Cokkeswaste, late in the tenure of John Hykynson. 
(Stale papers.) John Higginson, of Berkeswell, in 1518, is 
said to have been named as executor in the will of a resident 
of Berkeswell. 

John Higginson, of Berkeswell, who made his will 10 
Dec, 1540, which was proved 4 February following, was 
connected with the AVem Hiiisciusons. He had at the time 
of his death four grandchildren. It is not unlikely, there- 
fore, that he was identical with the John Higginson named 
above. If so, he presumably was quite an aged man at his 
death. His date of birth may with reason be assumed to 
be prior to 1480. Certainly not much later. From his 
will it appears that he had a brother deceased, who formerly 
lived in Wem, and who may have l)een an elder brother. 
Two of his sons lived in Wem, namely, John and Nicholas. 
The former was of Cotton. An abstract of his will follows: 

John Higison, of Berkeswell, yeonlan ; will dated 10 
Dec, 1540, and proved at Lichfield, February, 1540-1, 
mentions children and grandchildren given below, together 
with (grandchildren) Robert and Dorothy Higginson, each 
£8, and cousin Asfnes nif]:inson who shall receive of 
Nicholas Higginson, dwelling in the parish of Wem, three 
kine, as he had received for her from her father thirty-six

THE IDENTITY OF SYMONDS WHrPPLE. 



t 



The name of Symonds Whipple frequently occurs in the 
various accounts of the Whipple family, but his place in the 
family has never been clearly defined. 

Matthew Whipple, the elder of the two brothers who 
settled in Ipswich about 1638, had eldest son John (1G32- 
1695). John was a captain in the troop, and deputy to the 
General Court. In his will he names his son Cyprian (who 
was born Jan. 17, 1671). 

Cyprian Whipple married, Dec. 19, 1695, Dorothy, 
daughter of William Symonds, and granddaughter of Samuel 
Sj^monds. The hitter was Deputy-Governor of the Colony 
during the administration of Leverett. 

Their children were as follows : 
Cypri'au, born 4-10-1697; died Feb. 8, 1699. ^^^^^.^ 

sy"^^"^^- , , CipTrich. 

Samuel, *' Sept. 13, 1702. J ^ 

Mary, '' July 1, 1708. -\ 

Joseph, " Nov. 2G, 1710. >-Born in Stonington, Conn. 

William, " June 18, 1713. 3 

About the year 1708 Cyprian removed to Stonington, 
Conn., and thence to Stow, Mass. No record of the birth of 
Symonds Whipple has been found. The Ipswich records 
are very incomplete ; and the building in New London where 
the county records were stored was consumed by fire during 
the occupation of that town by the British in the Kevolution- 
ary war. Only a portion of the records were rescued. 

Jan. 1, 1727, Cyprian Whipple and wife Dorothy give 
land in Stow to their son Symonds Whipple. (Book 30, page 
315, Middlesex Deeds.) 

In 1720 Cyprian Whipple, of Stow, deeds his right in 
the estate of his father, Capt. John Whipple, to Symonds 
Whipple, of Stow.

126 THE IDENTITY OF SYMONDS WHIPPLE. 



*. 



Extract from Stonington Church Records : 

" Symonds Whipple of Stow, and Elizabeth Mason were 
married-hy me, Ebeuezer Rossiter, June 19, 1743." (This 
Elizabeth IMason was the great-granddaughter of Captain, 
afterward Major, Mason, leader cff the Pequot war, and for 
many years governor of Connecticut and commander-in- 
chief of the State forces.) I 

Extract from Stoninofton Town Records, 1710 : I! 

" The mark belonging to the house of Cyprian 'VYhip[)le | 

for his cattle, sheep and service is a crop on the left ear and I 

a cut across a pail of the underside of each ear. Entered | 

upon record this 21st day of March 1709-10." 

" The above said mark is now entered to Symonds 
Whipple, this 29th day of July, A.D. 1743." 

Extract from New London Probate Records : I 

Will of WiUiam Whipple, " (the youngest son of | 

Cyprian) wife Mercy. Children: ^William, Submit, Mercy, I 

Doroth}', and Martha. Witnessed by | 

" Samuel Whipple and | 

" Symonds Whipple." | 

As the making of this will antedates its probating by a | 

single month, it is probable that William knew that death was I 

at hand. He summoned to his aid his brothers Samuel i 

Whipple and Symonds Whipple. | 

The family Bible of descendants of Symonds Whipple was | 

stolen from an open window, and the thief heeded its coun- * 

sels so little that it was never returned. It contained vital | 

statistics covering a long period. Symonds Whipple had a I 

son Joshua, who in turn had a son Joshua, who had a daugh- % 

ter Lucy. This Lucy Whipple was married to Jasper Ray- | 

mond Rand, of Westfield, Mass., and thus became the grand- \ 

mother of the present writer. ■■ 

Floiience Osgood Rand. 

Query. — Thomas Whipple, of New London, married, Sept. 13, 1773, Cathcriae | 

Jcffery. He was not a son of Symonds Whipple. Who v.ere hia parents ? | 

[Note by Editok. — Mr. Charles II. Preston > the author of the Whipple {jcue- I 

alogy, which appeared in Vol. IT., considers it probahlc that Symonds Whipple wiui 
born between Samuel, 1702, and Mary, 1708.]

lustre upon the accomplishments of each other." Mr.

description : beauty, elegan ie, sensibility, and genius 
are her attributes. In adapting, in dressing, in look-

APPLETON. 



APPLETON OP SUFFOLK, ENGLAND, AND 

IPSWICH, MASS. 



Arms. — Argent a fess sable between three apples gules, 
leaves and stalks vert. 

Crest, — An elephant's head couped sable tusked and 
^ared or, with a serpent entering his mouth vert. 

Another crest, apparently used with equal authority by 
the Appletons in England, was, three pine apples vert, the 
tops purled or, in a crown proper. 

The Appleton family of Suffolk is mentioned in the Visi- 
tations. Various armorial memorials remain. 

Descent is proven from John Apulton, who was of Wald- 
inoffield Mafjna in 1396, and who died 1414. The line runs 
through John, died later than 1459 ; John died 1481 ; 
John living 1483 ; Thomas, died 1507 ; Robert died 1526 ; 
William; Thomas, who died 1603; Samuel, the emigrant 
to New Encrland. 

o ... 

Samuel, of Ipswich, was the fourth son, the eldest being 
Sir Isaac Appleton, but none of the other sons left male 
issue who survi" ed . 

The sisters of Samuel Appleton married Eobert Rcyce, 
who names his " loving brother-in-law Samuel Appleton, 
now living in Ipswich, K.E." in his will, and Lewis Bayley, 
Bishop of Bangor. 

Samuel Appleton, born 1584, died in Rowley in 1670 ; his 
wife was Judith Evered, and by her had sons John and Samuel . 

Both of these sons, like their father, were members of the 
General Court, were military leaders and bitter opponents 
of Governor Andros. 

The family is still represented in Ipswich and elsewhere 
in Massachusetts. 

Through the female lines the Appletons inherit the blood 
of many of the best old English families. (See *' Heraldic 
Journal "for July, 1865.)

The English Ancestry of the Families of Batt and 
BiLEY, by J. Henry Lea, Boston, 1897. Reprinted from 
the "New Eno^land Historical Genealogical Re<2:ister." Mr. 
Lea is favorably known from his researches in En^^land. The 
abstracts of records printed illustrate the ancestry of Henry 
Byley, of Newbury and Salisbury, and of Christopher Batt 
through the Bileys, for two generations in England. The 
ancestry of Nicholas Batt, of Newbury, is derived from John, 
a bastard son of Richard Batt, who died 1558. These 
researches prove that Nicholas and Christopher Butt, of 
Newbury, were not brothers, nor even near relatives.

86. Rebecca^ Pabodie (William, ^ Elizabeth ^ Alden). 
Born in Little Compton, Feb. 29, 1704, and died in Fair- 
field, Conn., Oct. 27, 1783. She married Dec. 6, 1732 
(I am not sure of this date), Rev. Joseph Fish, son of 
Thomas and Margaret (Woodworth) Fish, of Duxbury. 
He was born (AYinsor) Jan. 28, 1706. Harvard College, 
1728. He was called to the church in Stonington, Isorth 
Parish, and ordained Dec. 27, 1732. He remained '.vith 
this charge till his death. May 22, 1781. He received 
urgent calls in 1750-51 to the church in Little Compton 
and also to the Xewpoi*t church. In the account of Rev. 
Joseph Fish, in Sprague's " Annals of the American Pulpit," 
Vol. I., page 363, he is thus described : 

" His manners were those of a Christian gentleman ; affa- 
bility and kindness were combined with the dignified suavity 
of a spiritual guide and teacher. He enjoyed tlie best 
advantages for education, and he appears to have profited 
by them, as his writing exhibited a vigorous and cultivated 
mind." Some children died young ; these names I have not 
got. The account says both parents were anxious to give 
to their two dau^^hters, who were their onlv surviving" chil- 
dren, the best education attainal:)le at those times.

houses, edifices, stables, barns, yards, pastures, commons, 
wastes, etc., rents, reversions, etc., in Fletchampstead, 
f" Allesley, Weston-under-Werely, Stonley, Conndon, Erick- 

lowe, Attlebrough Grafton als. Temple Grafton, and New- 
bold-upon-Avon in co. Warwick, provided the said Leicester 
and Higginson at or in the walk adjoining to the mayor's 
parlor in the Cross Cheapinge, in the city of Coventry, on 
the 24 day of June next, pay the sum of 10000 pounds 
sterling. Dated 4 Dec, 10 James I (1612) ; enrolled 12 
May, 11 Jas. I. (Close Rolls 11 Jas. I, part 23c, No. 35.) 

These places are all in the close vicinity of Coventry, and 
Allesley adjoins Berkeswell on the east. 

The connection of Ilobert Hieffinson of Viro^iuia with the 
Berkeswell Higginsons is proven by the following and fore- 
going deeds : 

Suit in Chancer}^, 1 Aug., 1650 (H. 93, No. 41), wherein 
Thomas Hiairinson of Berkeswell, in Warwickshire, com- 
plains that in July, 1650, Joanna Higginson, widow and 
relict of Ilobert Higginson, late citizen and printer stainer 
of London, deceased, and younger brother of your orator, 
in consideration of £280 for her better maintenance and the 
preferment of Lucy Higginson, the only daughter and heiress 
of said Robert and Joanna, and now living in Virginia, 
agreed to sell a certain messuage and lands in Berkeswell, 
now in the joint hands of Roger Roden, John Bird, and 
John Anstie or their assigns, and now or late in the occu- 
pation of the said Thomas Higginson, heretofore in the 
tenure of his parents (names illegible?), etc. Later it 
appears that in tlio 22d year of James (1624/5), a fine was 
passed enfeoffing Stephen Plales and William Holbech, 
Dpon trust, for the benefit of said Thomas Higginson, the 
elder, and Ann his wife, your orator's father and mother, 
and afterward for the benefit of the said Joanna Higginson 
by the name of Joanna Torkesey ; and that, about the month 
of Aug., 1649, the said Robert Higginson died in Virginia, 
and by virtue of the said fine the said Joanna and her heirn 



; I !

become possessed of the benefits of the said trust. The said 
Stephen Hales * * * Stephen Hales of SnitterfieJd, co. 
Warwicli, grandchild and heir of the said Stephen Hales, 
deceased, and Mary Holbech, grandchild and heir of the 
said William Holbech, deceased, are subject to the trusts 
aforesaid. It further appears that Barnabas Holbech was 
the father of the above mentioned Mary Holbech, and that 
she is under 16 and not able to give possession of the prop- 
erty, etc. There are other considerations involved, as 
Robert Higginson died possessed of a good estate and his 
relict had £500 of it, etc. 

The object of the suit is to get possession through an 
order of the court, the complainant avowing there is a con- 
spiracy to keep him out of his purchase and rights. The 
answer of Joanna Hiaii^inson, Avidow of llobert, is dated 
8ame day, who recites that after the fine mentioned and 
assurances were passed, she and the said Ilobert were mar- 
ried, and about seven years since did go into parts beyond 
the seas and did for divers vears live in Yiio^inia, and that 
the said Robert died there on or about Aug., 1649, leaving 
issue Lucie Higginson. She denies that the estate of said 
Robert was as much as £500, or that she came into posses- 
sion of any considerable amount of it, and that the said Rob- 
eit's estate was largely in debt in Virginia. She states she 
paid his debts and obtained an order aflecting her discharge 
from the Colony and Council of Virginia, and that she and 
her daufifhter were left in a manner destitute, savins^ for the 
provision made for them before her marriage. That in July 
last she came to England to demand her property, etc., and 
made an agreement with the said Thomas, as he states, and 
has received the £280, and is content, and is willing that 
conveyance should be made to him of the property. 

Answer of Mary Holbech, through her guardian, Arthur 
Galley, does not claim any interest or title in the estate. 

Capt. Robert Higginson is mentioned in an old manuscript 
in the Rootes family as from Dublin, and he is said to have

been in 1645 the commander at Middle Plantation in Vir- 



ginia. 



His daughter and heiress, Lucy, married Major Lewis 
Burwell, and had Lewis, afterward major and member of the 
Council. 

She married, second, Col, William Bernard, who seems to 
have died without issue. 

She married, third, Col. Philip Ludwell, and had Philip, 
also a colonel and of Greenspring. (See "Lee of Virginia," 
page 127.) 

We shall recur to this family later.

RUGGLES OF MASSACHUSETTS. 



Arms, — Ari^ent a chevron between three roses gules. 
Crest. — A tower or, inflamed, proper and pierced with 
four arrows in saltire, points downward, argent. 
Motto. — Strusfofle. 

oo 

The Ruggles family, of Massachusetts, descended from 
Thomas and John Ruggles from Nasing and of Hoxbury in 
1635-7, are descendants of Thomas Ruggle or Ruggles, of 
Sudbury in Suffolk, who died in 1547. This Thomas left 
a son Nicholas whose son Thomas settled in Nasing rnd 
became father of the emigrants. The descent of this Thomas 
is derived from the ancient family of Ruggeley in Staflbrd, 
whose only representatives at the present day arc the Rug- 
gleses of Suffolk: and Essex in England. The arms appear 
in the Visitations of Stafiordshire. Rev. John W. S. 
Rugeley, of St. Ives, Huntingdon, the last of his line, 
asserted that William de Ruggele was the original grantee. 
It is said the arms were granted by Edward I. in 1298, for 
valiant service in Flanders. The same arms are ascribed to 
Rugeley of Flanders by Rietstap in his Armorial General. 

John Sydney Hawkins, in his "Life of George Ruggle" * 
(the famous scholar of the time of James the First, fellow of 
Clare Hall, dramatist, wit, and satirical writer, and among 
the first and most enero^etic workers in the cause of Enfrliirh 
colonization in America, a member of the Virginia Company), 
traces this branch of the family from Stafford to Warwick, 
Lincoln, and Suffolk, in which county last named Thomas 
and William Ruggle, two brothers, settled at the beginning 
of the sixteenth century. He thus blazons the arms 
therein : " Field argent, a chevron inter three roses gules..

174 GLEANINGS FROM BEDFORD COUNTY, VA., DEEDS. 

Crest, — On a \7reath of the colors a tower or, flaming at 
the top proper, against four arrows in saltire." 

Some question has arisen as to whether the correct blazon 
of the arms which are here given should be as at the head 
of this article, or whether the tower should not be described 
as *' flaming at the top." It is held by eminent modern 
authority that "inflamed" indicates flames bursting out the 
poi-ts as well as from the battlements. But there are numer- 
ous instances where inflamed evidently has been used simply 
to describe a beacon burning. Gen. Timothy Euggles, 
who was prominent in colonial times, used a seal with the 
crest showing a tower with flames bursting from the port- 
holes, but not rising from the battlements. The arrows, 
instead of piercing the tov/er, pierce the cloud of smoke 
above the tower. 

For detailed pedigree see "X.Y. Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Record," Vol. XXV., 164; XXVllI., 214.

MAHEIAGES IN PORTSMOUTH, N.H., SOUTH 
PARISH, BY REV. SAMUEL HAVEN, 

1752 — 1760. 



The records of the South Church are in good condition, 
and a t^^pewritten copy accessible to strangers. The 
baptisms date from 1714, the year of the division. On 
account of the very meagre vital records belonging to the 
city the value of church records is greatly increased. 

At the City Hall may be found a copy of the first parish 
and church records, w^hich, however, are not continuous, 
although practically dating from 1671. The Episcopal 
church (St. John's) records begin 1732, and are in the care 
of the rector. 

Newington, formerly Blood}^ Point, was set off from 
Portsmouth and Dover in 1713. 

A private record of births, marriages, and deaths in Ports^- 
mouth from 1706 to 1742 is printed in Vol. S, 23-26, of N.E. 
Hist. Gen. Register.

Nicholas Higginson, son of John of Berkeswell, at the ; 

time of his father's death living in Wem, and trustee for a 
small legacy for Agnes Higginson, which his father had 
received for her benefit from her father. 

No trace of Nicholas is found in the parish records o( 
Wem, nor has his will been found. He is mentioned in the 
will of his brother Thomas, of Berkeswell, in 1573. 

It would appear that he left Wem and settled near Berkes- 
well or in some part of Leicestershire. He probably died in 
Clay brook in April, 1581. - -

It is more than probable that he was the father of 

Hugh, of Berkeswell. 

Rev. John, of Claybrook, who named one of his sons Nicho- 
las. 
Nicholas, of Leire, who died 1589, and probably others. 

Nicholas Ilio^irinsoii, of Leire, is known from his will to 
have been a brother to Eev. John Higginson, of Claybrook. 

The parish register of Claybrook, under date of 11 April, 
1581, records the burial of a Nicholas Hi^^o^inson. 

Rev. John Higginson was instituted rector at Claybrook, 
in 1572. He named two of his sons Nicholas, one of whom 
died in infancy, but later than 1594. He also had a grand- 
son named Nicholas. As far as observed, the name has not 
appeared in other branches of the Il.igfo-inson family.

Besides others :

101. DanieP Grinnell (Lydia^ Pabodie, Elizabeth^

young, as he or his heirs are not mentioned in his father's 
will. I feel sure that there is an error in the Buckingham 
Genealogy. It says, "Deacon Jedidiah Chapman of AYest- 
brook, son of Major Jedidiah and Hester (Kirkland) Buck- 
ingham, born Dec. 15, 1726. Man-ied Mary Grinnell, 
daughter of Daniel^ in the year 1755." I feel sure she is 
daughter of George (Daniel), born 1731. 

102. Hannah'* Bradford (Elizabeth ^ Rogers, Elizabeth '^^

TION CONCERNING AMERICAN FAMILIES 
ORIG-INATm^G IN SCOTLAND. 



It is said, and truly, that next to the Puritan element of 
which New England furnishes the best type, the Covenanting 
element, descendants of Scottish and Irish emigrants, should 
he recos^nized as brino'iuof about the consolidation and ad- 
vancement of the people of the United States. 

So numerous have been the emii2:rants to America of 
Scottish ancestry, whether direct or by way of Ireland and 
England, that it would not be surprising if the people of the 
United States, not of Continental origin, have equal claims 
to Scottish and English ancestry. 

Setting aside the '^ Scotch-Irish " element, which has sup- 
plied the greater part of the Scottish blood, there were two 
distinct contributions of Scottish blood to Colonial America. 

The earlier and least known was the migi'ation from the 
east coast towns of Scotland. The other was tlie migration, 
chiefly to the south, after the two futile Stuart risings in 
1715 and 1745. The chanoe in methods of cultivatiniz; 
estates, the ofradual EnHisliinc: of the Hiij^hlands, rather 
than participation in the rebellion, was the reason for this 
later migration. 

It is no wonder that with so large a portion of our people 
bearing Scottish names, and so many more inheriting 
Scottish blood, Americans should take a lively interest in 
Scottish genealogy. 

Nevertheless the most vague ideas of Scottish genealogy 
are prevalent in the States. 

It is proposed in this paper to describe, briefly, the mate- 
rials existing from which information may be gained con- 



ceining our Scottish ancestors.

206 AMERICAN FAMILIES ORIGINATING IN SCOTLAND. 

The families of Highland and Lowland Scotland had little 
in commoD. The clan system and the primitive methods 
of living prevailing in the Highlands ellectually bar gene- 
alogical research in that district, except among the more 
important families of a clan. Even then only students long 
accustomed to such research can hope to perform any satis- 
factory work. The bearing of the clan name is not proof 
of a common origin, for affiliation with a clan was frequently- 
followed by the adoption of the clan name. So, too, in late 
years, the reverse was to some extent true, for according to 
Lord Rosebery's preface to Dr. MacLeod's "List of Rebels," 
*' clan names were not so strictly adhered to as is generally 
supposed." 

It is stated (sixth and twelfth detailed reports of the 
Scottish Registrar-geneml) that while there are about 6,800 
family names in Scotland, one-half of the population are 
embraced by 150 of the commonest surnames. Of the first 
fifty common names on the list, twenty-three are well dis- 
tributed, but the remainder arc local. 

Thus there are 8,000 Stuarts, 9,500 Campbells, 15,000 
M'Donalds, 8,600 Hamiltons, 6,000 Robertsons, as many 
M'Leans, nearly as many ^M'Leods and IM'Kays, Erasers 
and Grants, and so on. These great clans are represented 
the world over, and it is a manifest impossibility to prove the 
ancestry of an emigrant bearing such common names, unless 
there is documentary proof as to his relationship with some 
well-known family in the clan. 

Early New England records contain many references to 
persons who are descri])ed as Scots. As a rule tliese indi- 
viduals, who were undoubtedl}^ more numerous than gener- 
ally supposed, came from the coast towns of the Scottish 
Lowlands, especially to the north of Edinburgh. 

The names found on parish registers prior to 1700, of tliat 
district, are perfectly familiar American names of to-day, 
and for the past two centuries. 

The same names are found in various parts of England

]\rany of our New England settlers, as for as their name is 
concerned, would have been as much at home in Fifeshire as 
in Devonshire or Kent. 

1'his similarity of nomenclature has, it seems to the writer, 
been somewhat overlooked by Americans bearing that 
peculiar class of names, in seeking to locate the home of 
their emis^rant ancestor. 

The merchants, craftsmen, and sailors of the Scottish east 
coast were eneigetic, skilful, and self-reliant. Moreover, they 
were of good blood, and could frequently claim near relation- 
ship to prominent families of the Scottish nol)iUt3^ To be- 
come a buri^her of a town was no dis2:race. The wills of the 
nobility show that younger sons established themselves in 
the towns for commercial purposes. 

The Scotch have been noted for hard conunon-sense, and 
it is the Lowland Scotch who have brought that credit upon 
the whole nation. Undoubtedly we owe much of our free- 
dom from prejudice against an honest occupation to the 
Scottish elements in our nation. 

The east coast of Lowland Scotland is divided into the 
following commissariats for probate business : 

Aberdeen, records commence 1711-15. 

Brechin, records commence 1576. 

Dunblane and Perth, records connneuce 1539. 

Edinburgh, records commence 1514. 

Lauder, records commence 1561. 

St. Andrews, records commence 1549. 

For Edinburgh the British Record Society has printed a 
calendar of estates settled, which is being continued by the 
newly formed Scottish Record Societ}^ This latter society 
will follow their present work with calendars of other com- 
iiiissariats. 

The calendars — there are practically no indexes — are ar- 
I'^nged by years, only give the name of testator [if a woman, 
licr maiden name and name of husband] and residence.

sometimes occupation, and date of probate act or administra- 
tion, etc. The reference is to the register for that period, 
but the pages, closely written, must be turned over till the 
month and day and name are found. 

Wills are not as satisfactory, on the average, as in either 
England or America. Land could not be devised, but a 
deed revocable at will, called " donatio mortis causa," was 
passed by which the heir perfected his title. Such deeds 
were registered on the death of the grantor. Among the 
records of the Commissariat Courts are deeds, protests, wills, 
acts of administration, probate, accounts, inventories, etc. 

The records of these courts are preserved in the General 
Reo^ister House at EdinburHi. 

Deeds have been recorded from early times. The Sasine 
records unfortunately are calendared onl}- by references in the | 

" minute books " from which the name of the grantee may he 
found, toG;ethcr with the location and occasionallv other 
notes of value. The mars^inal references in the Sasine 
register rarely give additional information to that of the 
minute book. It therefore would be necessary to read 
the two clauses in which the s^rantor would be mentioned, 
in every deed, if an exhaustive search w^as being made, to 
find the grants of an individual or family. The Sasine 
records were kept by districts, of which the records are now 
in the General Kegistry at Edinburgh. 

Insufficient, by reason of lack of indexes, as these records 
are, they far surpass the sources of information regarding 
land transfers* in England. 

The Sasine records for the eastern coast begin in soD)e 
instances as early as 1559. 

The Books of Council and Session are registers in which 
are entered deeds of every kind. These records commence 
in 1554. Records of the Court of the Exchequer also cou- 
taiu many ancient deeds. 

* A collection of deeds numberiog several thousand, known as the Laing Charter?, 
has been abstracted and indexed, and will soon be published. From an inspection of 
the proof-sheets it is evident this volume will prove of the greatest value to genealogists.

Of printed records relating to the more important families 
and Scottish history are the six volumes of the Kegister 
of the Great Seal, covering the period 1424-1620, with 
indexes. 

Exchequer Kecords, beginning about 1300, of which 
thirteen volumes are already printed. 

Treasurer's Accounts, printed from 1473-1498. 

Privy Council Records, printed from 1545 to 1619. 

Judicial Eecords of the Court of Session [" Acta do- 
minorura concilis"], two volumes. 

Retours [Inquisitiones post-mortem], beginning 1545, have 
been abstracted and published with indexes. These printed 
volumes are to be found at every Sasine registry and in 
most libraries. 

There are many series of records, more or less valuable to 
the genealogist, besides those mentioned above. By far the 
most important to Americans are the Parish Registers. 
These are now in the possession of the Registrar at Edin- 
burgh and easily accessible. 

A fee of a shilling for each name sought for or entry 
copied is charged. In case one is somewhat "foggy" as to 
the particular parish, the officials will permit two or three 
neighboring parishes to be examined. 

An official handbook to the records presei'ved in this office 
was printed in 1874, for the use of the office, and a very 
few copies were given to interested persons. This hand- 
book gives an account of the records of each parish, with 
remarks concerning them. The Scottish Antiquary, Vols. 
I.-III., has a similar list. 

The Kirk-sessions records are frequently included in 
these records, it having been found impossible in some cases 
to separate baptismal, marriage, and burial records from the 
doings of the church as a disciplinary body. It is unfort- 
unate that all Kirk-session records were not retained. 

As a rule the parish registers for the Lowlands north 
of Edinburgh commence about 1600, or a trifle earlier;

usually early enough for purposes of finding the baptism of 
Scottish emigTants. 

The condition of these records is good. As a rule the 
entry recites that a child, man-child appearing for son, to 
the fatlier named, the mother named by her maiden name, 
was baptized. The birth is frequently given. Residence and 
occupation of father are given, and names of the witnesses. 
These latter are of course often of s^veat value. 

In marriage records the parentage of the bride is some- 
times given. 

Parish registers were at first voluntary records of the 
pastor. They came into being about the time of the Refor- 
mation. The «freat number of ille<::itimate l^irths mentioned 
shows the painstaking eflToils of the clergy, and the instances 
of church discii)]inc are proof that the culprit, whatever his 
rank, was obliged to humble himself before the conirreiiation. 

In many res[)ects the Kirk-session records are identical 
with our " church-moetinD: records," and abound with valu- 
able genealogical material. 

St. Andrews Kirk-sessions are in print, in part at least. 

Extremely valuable records are the local guild records. 
These are in tlie possession of private persons, survivors or 
representatives of the guilds. Usually one is referred to 
some lawyer, who cares nothing for genealogical research. 
Other valuable records are the bur<»h or town records. 
Anions the town archives should be lists of all the freemen 
of the guilds, and of the apprentices. 

The American seeking genealogical information from 
Scottish records will find that his task is more diflicult than 
anticipated. Free senrch permits are carefully guarded, and 
granted only upon a well-vouched- for application detailing 
the purpose of the search, the records to be examined, and 
under a promise to print the results attained. Free permits 
are never issued for the parish registers. 

The greatest coui'tesy prevails throughout the oflices, and 
strangers need not fear to ask for information.

The fees for search in the general search-room are not 
excessive, and are arranged in such a way as to obviate the 
necessity of fooling thtit one ixifiy be watched to see if he 
takes too much. 

The literary eearch-room is above the public room, and is 
never overcrowded. Those in charge are historical students, 
and well qualified and willing to be of service to a student. 

Manifestly tlie most likely records to return results are 
the parish registers and the probate records. If a more ex- 
tended search is intended, then the services of some repu- 
table agent should be retained. 

A class of records of value to Americans of Scotch de- 
scent are those concerning the risings of 1715 and 1745. 

The "List of Rebels" (1745), edHed by Mr. AYalter Mac- 
Leod, contnins a o^reat deal of valuable information. Lord 
^ Rosebery supplied an historical prefice. 

The records of " Forfeited Estates " are of value for infor- 
mation concerninoj members of families attainted for ad- 
,| herence to the Stuarts. 

I An inventory of the papers fonnd among the "Proceed- 

ings of the Commissioners of Forfeited Estates," now 
deposited in the Public Record Office in London, will be 
found in Report V., App. XL, pp. 97-130, of the Deput}^ 
Keepers' Reports. 

The reader desirin": to obtain further information re^^ard- 
ing the possibilities of genealogical research in Scotland is 
referred to the " Handbook of Records in H.M. General 
Register House, Edinburirh," issued in 1885, and to Mr. 
W. P. W. Phillimore's "Supplement to How to Write the 
History of a Family," pp. 360-387. 

In closing it is well to mention that the useful Advocate's 
Library in Edinburgh is accessible to any respectable 
student, and that there will be found a very complete col- 
lection of Scottish genealogical publications, including 
privately printed family histories, some of which are very 
elaborate and trustworthy. 

A work valuable to the student of the 2;enealo£^ical historv 
of the north shore of the Firth of Forth Is the " East Neuk 
of Fife," by Rev. AYalter AVood, of which a second edition 
was published after the author's death.

SOME BXPBRIHINCBS OF AN EISraLISK 

GENEALOGIST. 



BY TIIE REV. O. F. S. P. JENKIXS, F.G.S., M.G.A., ETC. 



I do not intend in these few lines to disclose any of the 
secret ways of genealogists. Indeed, in many things they 
are pretty well past finding out. What has stirred me up is 
this : a letter came from the editor of a 2fenealo2:ical maira- 
zine when I was Jiorsde combat, having been unable to follow 
for some weeks, except in a slight degree, any of my rather 
numerous literary occupations. This letter recalled some- 
what of the past, and tempted me to put down a few of my 
experiences. This is the first time I have ventured to apply 
the actual technical term " genealogist " to myself. If any 
class in the world have to do tlieir work in the dark and 
underground like the mole it is the genealogist. He often 
has to do this literally. Somerset House, York Minster, 
and nearly all the diocesan registers are my witnesses. The 
poor genealogist is supposed to have eyes equal to those of 
an eagle ; and as for his patience — well, that of Job is hardly 
to be mentioned. As to the great science — and who will dare 
say it is not a ver}" great science? — of putting two and two 
together, he must be a perfect adept, or he is no good at all. 
I do not say how much he is likely to find the sum total of 
the above question; suiEce to sa}^ it is not always 3.999 ad 
infinitum, 

I have said I have never before ventured to put myselt 
down like this as " genealogist." Yet I have had more than 
twenty years' labor at the business. I have now rolls upon 
rolls and bundles upon bundles of manuscript. I have traceii 
many and many a pedigree. I have seen hundreds of regis- 
ters, manuscripts of various dates and importance. All this

has forced on me the very strong idea that very few can really 
claim to be called by this name. I know many do call them- 
selves so, but cui bono? It is not what we call ourselves, but 
what we are capable of doing is the real question. 

As to the designation itself, no one, I think, can claim it, 
except he has given years and years of very patient, laborious 
work in its execution, and that without calculating on fee or 
reward. There may be a few heaven-born genealogists. I 
have never seen one yet. I admit some are by temperament 
and by natural ability better qualilied for this occupation than 
others, and these are the only ones that are ever likely to, or 
indeed ever can, succeed in this very laborious and very 
intricate occupation. If there is a single profession in the 
world that need write "' No amateurs need apply " over its 
vestibule, that one is that of the genealogist. Ilis apprentice- 
ship must be long and weary, his articles are of the severest. 
He often has to make his bricks without a particle of straw ; 
he has to trace his fox without an atom of scent. He has not 
only to cross the Rubicon and burn his boats, but when he 
lands on the other side of the Rubicon he finds only an inextri- 
cable maze. AVell, we cannot wonder tliat ordinary flesh and 
blood slirinks from anything like this, and tries to carve out 
for itself a royal road to genealogy. Many do this. I have' 
seen here and there '' pedigree trees." They have been shown 
to me with great pride, and my opinion asked about them. 
There was the tree sure enough, root, branches, top, and all 
complete. As an art of penmanship, some of these have 
looked very well, but as for the tree, root and branches for 
most part, it grew only in the imagination of the penman. 
Under a goodly few of these I have been inclined to inscribe, 
*' Mangling done here." So much for the ro^^al road. 
Like the chapter on snakes in Ireland, " There are no 
snakes in Ireland," I would say, "There is no royal road to 
genealogy." If anyone wants to travel on here, he must 
unbuckle to the last hole and brace up every nerve. 

I could say a good deal about the sources of information

at his command. They lie chiefly among musty, dusty 
volumes of manuscripts, often badly cared for. These are 
his stock in trade. They are often illegible, and have to be 
restored b}^ chemicals. Even after they are restored they 
are like the boy's horse. When asked what fault he had, 
"I find two faults," said he. "The horse is bad to catch, 
and after he's cauo;ht he's not worth the trouble of catchino/' 
The uninitiated could not read a page a day of some of these 
old manuscnpts, and when he finished his reading he would 
be little the wiser. 

Only think what little care is taken in many cases of our 
parochial registers. These are priceless in value, as beini( 
the only authentic record in existence of three of the most 
important events of life. Yet it is within my experience to 
say that in many cases they are treated nearly like wasi.e 
paper. But I dare not trust myself to tell now even a 
fraction of what I know on this matter. 

I could even tell a tale about the troubles of a o^enealoaist 
— not those that are always with him, but of those people 
make for him. ]Many appl}' to him from all quarters, and 
would fain have him do all only for fair promises — in fact, 
to live on nothing. ]Many like this have fallen to my share. 
Then again many hold out the prosi)ects of immediate ricli 
reward. The poor genealogist goes to work with a gu(h\ 
heart, because, like everybody else, he is stimulated l\y hope 
of a reward. He soon spends a few pounds, and then tlu' 
promises tumble like a house of cards. He finds all hi^ 
money gone for naught, and his time wasted as far as that 
was concerned. 

I am bound to say the worst bite I have ever had in thi-* 
way was by a Church of England clergyman ; so it was a cm-'' 
of brother robbino^ brother, of doe; bite do«'. A few year- 
ago I made an extended research into the pedigree au" 
connection of Oliver Cromwell. I was serving the chnidi 
where his wife, children, and grandchildren were buried. 1 
published some articles which were rather widely read. Thes*'

landed me in much correspondence ; and I found that many 
1 people thought they could trace themselves back to him. I 
# paid scant attention to these, but a clergyman wrote me a ver}^ 
circumstantial account, and wanted me much to take the mat- 
ter up for him. He held out the most tempting offers of 
reward, but for a w^hile I held back, knowing it would be a 
very expensive aflair, which I fully represented to him. But 
expense was of no moment to him. I went to work rather 
reluctantly, I must confess. I undertook long journeys and 
paid fees, etc. At last I applied to him for money out of 
pocket, or I would go on no further. Judge of my surprise 
when he impudently wrote back he was too poor to pay me a 
penny. I found out afterwards he had victimized others. 

Then, again, what clever hiding of skeletons we find out 
here and there. The Ulbler kiun at arms need have a maw 
like an ostrich to digest all the matter placed before him. 
There are many little matters that are gilded over so nicel}^ 
in Burke's that even the most fastidious would suspect 
nothing. "Esq." is a title fitted to cover man}' an inglorious 
origin. 

The true student of genealogy seeks facts, not fable, and 
the genealogist who would conceal facts of an unpleasant 
nature to flatter his client is unreliable. Oftentimes the 
truth so hardly got at is so unpalatable that the genealogist 
never receives the. credit due him for his discoveries. Such 
experiences are ^' all in a day's work." As the work of a 
genealogist is more or less conlidential , he has often the 
provocation of seeing his work given to the public without a 
word of credit or commendation.

240 NOTES AND QUERIES. 

I inclose you herewith a partial answer to Query No. 61, 

page 197, Vol. 4, of your magazine. 

Arthur E. Gage. 

Lieut. Thomas Gage. — From a deposition sworn to by 
him May 20, 1692, it appears that he was then 36 years of age, 
which would make him born in 1656; see "Witchcraft in 
Salem Village in 1692," by Winfield E. Nevins, page 55. 

He married first Sarah , who from a deposition sworn to 

28 June, 1692, appears to have lieen then 40 years of age and 
consequently born in 1652. He married second Elizabeth 
Mighill, wudow of Ezekiel Mighill. She was the daughter 
of Ezekiel Northend and was born in Rowdey, Oct. 19, 
1656 ; she married first Humphrey Ilobson, July 25, 1682, 
by whom she had one son, Humphrey Hobson, born July 
10, 1684; her first husband died Aug. 8, 1684, and slie 
married second, Oct. 10, 1686, P^zekiel Mighill ; her 
second husband died July 3, 1694, without issue, and she 
married third Tliomas Gage, June 11, 1695, by whom she had 
one child, Elizabeth ; she died 14 July, 1737, aged 80 year.-?. 
(Church record, Rowley.) 

Thomas* Gage was appointed a lieutenant by Governor 
Dudley, and was slain on the disastrous expedition again;-t 
Port Koyal in Nova Scotia in Au^cust, 1707. It is said that 
he was beheaded by a cannon-ball. By his will dated April, 
1707, just prior to the sailing of this expedition from l^oston, 
it appears that he left a widow, Elizabeth, and the following 
children : 

1. Thomas, born 1G78 (baptized in Beverly 15 March, 1685) ; 

married JMarv Smith, Deo. 10, ICO 7. 

2. William, born 1680 (baptized in Beverly 15 March, 1685) ; 

married Mercy Barker, July 9, 1709. 

3. Sarah, born (baptized 15 March, 1685, Beverly) ; 

married Thomas Wood, Sept. 30, 1715. 

4. ISIary, born (baptized 1 Nov., 1685, Beverly) ; 

married Nathaniel Jewett, Jan. 15, 1706/7. 

* This Thomas I think to be a son of Thomas Gage, of Yarmouth, who ilicd Jtib'' 
1690, leaving a will in which lie mentions sous Thomas and Benjamin by name, ainl 
other children whom he does not name.

Shinkle Genealogy. — The family settled in America in 
1717. Collateral lines are given. Price $3. 

Kimball Family. — L. A. Morrison and Dr. S. P. Shar- 
pies have compiled and published a history of the Kimballs 
of America, with some account of the family in England. 
Tavo volumes, aggregating 1 ,300 pages, were required. There 
are many illustrations. The family name is as unconmion in 
En^^land as it is numerous here. 

The origin of the various Kimball families in America is 
given, and great eftbrts have been made, with remarkable 
success, to "round up" the clan. 

Of the edition of 1,000 copies a small number remain. 
Copies may be had of Dr. Sharpies, Boston, and the price 
is lower than that for most gene;ilogical books. The appear- 
ance of the volumes is very attractive. 

"The Kimball Family News" has been established, with 
the intention of continuing the genealogy of the Kim])all 
family to the present time. The Genealogical Department 
is in charge of Dr. S. P. Sharpies. It is especially valuable 
to those who already have the History, as during the year 
it will contain nmch additional matter supplementary to 
that already in the History. It is published at fifty cents a 
year. Address "The Kimball Family News," Topeka, Kan. 

Frost. — At Eliot, Me., 5 July, 1897, the Historical So- 
ciety commemorated the 200th anniversary of the massacre 
of Major Charles Frost by Indians. The proceedings of 
that day have been published, and among other addresses is 
a carefully prei)ared account of the origin of the Frost fam- 
ily, and of the early generations in New England. 

Major Charles Frost was son of Nicholas Frost and Bethia 
Cad walla, and grandson of John Frost and Anna Hamden. 
Nicholas was born in Tiverton, Devonshire, in 1585. Fm- 
thcr details may be found in the publication entitled " OKI 
Eliot," published by Augustin Caldwell.

The Highlands of Scotland in 1750, from Mss. 104 
in the King's Library, British Museum. With an introduc- 
tion by Andrew Lang. William Blackwood So Sons, Ed- 
inburgh, 1898. 8vo, pp. 169. 

This account by a Protestant sent to learn the condition 
of the Highlands, so lately in revolt, is without doubt 
strongly prejudiced b}^ the writer's sympathies and his 
desire to please his superiors. Yet it is a most remark- 
■able and interesting narrative. 

Observers of that date not in sympathy with clan loy- 
alty and Celtic romance unite in describing the ap})arently 
despei'ate condition of the poorer classes in the Highlands. 
They are described as practically enslaved, ignorant, and 
poverty stricken. From what is written by Lo\vland and 
English authorities there is but little surprise exhibited by 
Mr. Lang in his preface, that when cattle became of more 
account than claymores, the clansmen were treated, in many 
cases, with callous want of consideration. 

The manuscript deals with the matter under consideration 
by clan divisions. A genealogical account of the clan, and a 
brief historical account of the late doino^s of members and 
chiefs, are recited, together with views on the present con- 
ditions, political and economical, and proposed remedies. 

It is a book worth reading.

about 900 names. Less than ten years ago the membership 
list was about one-third as large. During the past decade, 
more than ever, the Institute has experienced great prosper 
ity, and under the watchful care of the late Thomas Franklin 
Hunt has reached a point where either it must continue to 
broaden and gain, or drop to the mediocre level of the usual 
local historical society. The membership to-day embi-aces 
about 450 residents of Salem, nearly 150 residents of the 
county outside of Salem, as many more in and about Boston, 
and the remainder scattered widely throughout this country 
and Europe. 

One cannot read the remarks of the President without 
feeling that the men who supported the late Henry Wheat- 
land in his life-long work have, by that aid, done well by 
their fellow-men. And their names will be found in every 
walk in life, from the eminent scientist and the prosperous 
merchant to the school-boy and the craftsman who have 
gladly contributed each what they could. 

It is to be regretted, although space was found for twenty- 
six pages of acceptances and regrets to invitations to attend 
the celebration, that the undelivered, but undoubtedly care- 
fully prepared and valuable address of Vice-President Good- 
ell should not have been placed before members of the society 
in print. More than one of those attending the reunion, 
knowing that Mr. Goodell had been especially invited to 
address the meeting, had looked forward to most interesting 
reminiscences of his connection with the Institute, extending 
over thirty years and exceeded by few in length of service 
as an active worker and officer in the society.

SOME NOTES REGARDING THE WEARE ARMS, 
THE WEARES OF DEVONSKIRS, ENGLAND, 
AND THE WEARES OF MASSACHUSETTS. 



BY EBEN PUTNAM. 



The arms illustrated in this issue are those borne by the 
Weares of Clyst Honiton, Devonshh*e, and of AYeare- 
GifFord. The latter line failed of male issue. The Clyst 
Honiton family appears in the Visitation of Devonshire 
for 1620. The same arms are found in use as early as 1698 
by Nathaniel and Peter Weare, of Hampton, N.H. 

The parish register of Clyst Honiton begins with entries 
of 1683, and is therefore valueless to establish a connection 
between that family and the Xewbury family. 

Another ao'i^rravatinsr circumstance is the larsje number of 
missing wills of testators of the name, which should be at 
Exeter. 

The Visitation pedigree concerns itself only with the 
actual line of the family using the arms, and is not by any 
means complete. 

A visit made to Exeter, to Gloucester, and to neighboring 
places, together with the results of searches both in Devon- 
shire and London, have placed in the writer's possession a 
considerable amount of AVeare memoranda. 

The name Weare, or Ware, is often spelled Wier, Wyer, 
Were, and AYhere. Wier and AVyer are the forms most 
often found in Scotland and Ireland and among the' descend- 
ants of Scotch immigrants of those families, but -it is also not 
uncommon in Devonshire and on our Essex county records 
in relation to the Newbury family. 

From the wills remaining, from lay subsidies, and from 
MSS. and printed collections relating to Devonshire the fol- 
lowing tentative pedigree of the family of Weare, of Clyst 
Honiton, has been formed:

SOME NOTES REGARDING THE WEARE ARMS. 247 

In the Lay Subsidy for Devonshire, taken in 1624, the 
names of the following Weares are returned as taxable in 
Clyst Iloniton ; 

Edmond ^Yeare, gentleman ; Thomas Weare, for lands ; 
Kichard, Ivobert, and Nathaniel Weare for goods, the latter 
paying £3. 

The list, of about 16,000 names, does not show another 
Nathaniel AVeare. It is true there was a Nathaniel Weare 
as of Bishops Clyst, who, before 1643, had married Bath- 
sheba, daughter of William Weare, of that place, and was 
living there in October, 1643, when he was suret}^ for his 
wife, administratrix of her only brother, Joseph AA^eare. 
Nathaniel Weare, the Newbury settler, was one of the 
ninety-one proprietors of Newbury in December, 1642, and 
may have been here several years earlier. 

It is not likely that the Nathaniel of Bishops Clyst was 
identical with him of the same name of Clyst Honiton twenty 
years earlier. It is not unlikely, as property was slowly 
accumulated in those days, that the Honiton man was at least 
thirty years of age, and probably considerably the senior 
of the Bisho])s Ch'st man. But he would be about the aae 
of Nathaniel Weare, who appeared in Newbury as early 
as December, 1642. 

Assuming that there were two Nathaniels, the elder, of 
Clyst Honiton, disappears from notice after 1624.-- 

There can be little doubt that Nathaniel Weare, of Clyst 
Honiton, was of the family mentioned in the Visitation. 
The Clyst Honiton family originated in Halberton, and 
members of the Halberton fiimil}^ and of the Clyst Honiton 
family are found owning property in the parishes contiguous 
to Clyst Honiton. 

The investigation gives us no further proof as far as the 
English records are concerned. In 1693, however, we find 
Nathaniel Weare and his son, Peter Weare, using the seal 
bearing the arms as pictured. Nathaniel, who was born in 
England, it is said, in 1631 or 1635, who visited his father

at Nantucket as late as 1660, was twice the agent of the New 
Hampshire people to England between 1683 and 1689. He 
was in England considerable time on both occasions, and 
would naturally seek his relatives, especially if he landed at 
a port in the southwest of England, which probably was 
the case. WTien he used the seal, ten years later, he must 
have known whether or no he had right to do so. Nor have 
we any knowledsre that that was his first use of the seal. 

This use of the arms would certainly seem to indicate a 
connection with the Clj^st Honiton famil}^, and the possibil- 
ity of the Nathaniel of Clyst Honiton in 1624 being iden- 
tical with the emiijrant is much strenijthened. 

There has never been anj^ connection discovered between 
the Peter AVeare family, of York, Me., and the Newbury 
family. The Peter Weare who was settled at York in 1638 
was born in 1618, and was named executor of the will of his 
brother, Thomas Weare, of Charfield in Gloucester, in 1684, 
which will Avas proved 3 Oct., 1685. Peter AVeare crossed 
the water to take administration. 

Robert Ware, who was of Dedham in 1643, and whc died 
in 1699 at an advanced age, may have been from Devonshire, 
but no connection has been discovered between the Dedham 
and other families.* An early Virginian, Nicholas Ware, 
married, prior to liyoby Ann, daughter of William Vassal, of 
Scituate. 

The names of every one of the American founders occur 
among the AVeares of Devonshire. 

Nathaniel Weare, or, as he was sometimes described, Wyer, 
was a proprietor of Newbury in December, 1642. He re- 
moved to Nantucket, having given a deed of land in Hamp- 
ton to his son Nathaniel before 1662. The Court files of 
Essex contain a paper relating to a runaway squaw of John 
Bishop's, in which Nathaniel Weare testifies being at the house 
of Thomas ]\Iac3^ in Nantucket when Bishop got the squaw in 
May of that year. 

♦This Robert left several sons, one of whom was named Nathaniel.

Nathaniel Weare died at Nantucket, 1 March, 1681 ; his 
wife was Sarah. 
% Children : 

Esther, or Hester, born probabl}' as earW as 1629. She mar- 
ried 1 Nov., 1647, Capt. Benjamin Swett (who is called 
brother-in-law by Nathaniel Weare, Jr., and who was also 
a party to the deposition in the Bishop case). She married, 
second, Stephen Greenleaf. 
Nathaniel, born either 1631 or 1635, who visited England as 
mentioned above, was chief justice of New Hampshire, 
councillor, etc., and through him descend most of the New 
Hampshire Weares. His son Peter was born 15 Nov., 
1660. Peter was a colonel, councillor, and justice. His 
father died in 1718 and he about 1745. His brother, 
H Nathaniel, born 29 Aug., 1669, was also a justice and 

J^ speaker of the house. He alone continued the name. 

Nathaniel, Sr., was also probably^ father of the following 
(^Sargent) : 

Robert. 
Daniel. 
Peter, who died at Newbury 12 Oct., 1653. 

Colonel Peter, in 1698, gave a power of attorney to Capt. 
John Pickering, which he acknowledged l)efore his father, 
Nathaniel AYeare, and sealed with the arms. The same seal 
he used twenty-four years later. 

Among the descendants of Nathaniel Weare are the Weares 
of Chicago, who operate the North American Transportation 
Company running to Alaska, and who have lately established 
a town and trading post on the Yukon bearing the name 
Weare. 

In a later issue we propose printing many wills making 
mention of persons bearing names identical with the emigrants 
to America, together with other memoranda of interest. 

The country northeast of Exeter to the border of Somer- 
setshire was more prolific in Weares than other parts of 
Devonshire, but the name occurred in the early part of the

seventeenth century very generally in a belt of country be- 
ginning on tlie borders of Somerset, with Halbei'ton as a 
centre, and running southwest to Exeter. There the direc- 
tion changed, and the belt broadened, so that it ran due 
west to Cornwall. In the southern parts of Gloucester the 
name is found, particularly in the vicinity of Charfield and 
Hawkesbury. It is also found in Somerset and Cornwall. 

Pinhoo, Clyst Ploniton, and Bishops Clyst are neighbor- 
ing parishes, all near Exeter. The Visitation states that the 
Clyst Honiton family originated in Halberton, which is 
known to be an early home of the family. The Pinhoo 
Sowton family would appear to be one with that of Clyst 
Honiton. 

The Halberton family numbered among its members Hum- 
phry Weare, of the Inner Temple, Loudon, who, in 1620, 
was recorder for Tiverton, and Henry AVeare, of London, 
who died in 1603. The father of Humphry Weare was liv- 
ing in 1618, as was his brother (Gen.) John [died 1621], 
and probably another brother, Thomas, who died in 1624, 
leaving sons Thomas and Humphry. Other Halberton 
Weares, contempoi'aries of the above, were John of the 
Orchard, Avhose son John married Margaret, daughter of 
Thomas Dart, in 1623 ; Thomas, of Corham ; and Nicholas, 
styled gentleman. 

None of the above appear in the Visitation pedigree — 
though, with one or two exceptions, they were st3'led gentle- 
men, and appear to have held considerable property. AYhcn 
the record was made at the Visitation it was evidently a 
point of honor to show that the Clyst Honiton family clainunl 
kinship with the older family at Halberton; hence we have 
the entry " of Halberton " afhxed to the record of Edmond 
Weare. It would appear without much question that Ed- 
mond was he of Pinhoo whose will was made in 1584, at 
which time children of his son Thomas were living. It i> 
therefore almost impossible that Nathaniel Weare, of Clv-t 
Honiton in 1624, could have been a descendant of the elder

Searle, the amiable consort of the Hon. Nathaniel Searle. 
Esq. She departed this life on the 11th day of Dec. 1781. 
A.D. in the 80th year of her age. 

" In life her Universal Benevolence endeared her to all. Her 
Virtues as a wife, a Parent and Friend shone with becoming 
lustre. And her Hope, being steadfastly fixed on God, our 
Saviour, whose benign influence supported her through a 
Train of complicated Diseases, for many years, with that 
Patience and Richness of Soul becomins^ the Profession, and 
enabled her to meet Death diserted of all its Terrors."

is no settlement of his estate, I think he must have moved 
out of the country. I think a (692?) Constant Soule, born 
about 1742, was his son.

1726, where he resided till his death. He soon became 
prominent in town atfairs, being largely interested in land 
speculations. In the Registry of Deeds of York County, 
Maine, no less than thirty transfers occur in as many years, 
to which he was a party, and probably that does not rep- 
resent all of his business. In the division of property 
rights, 1727, he drew Lot No. 48, which consisted of 38 acres 
of upland including the Islands, Middle Brother, Upper 
Brother, and Sow and Pis^s. This lot o^ave him Pew Xo. 19 
in the First Church, of which he was a member, having been 
received 9 May, 1731. He was the first assessor of the town 
in 1733, constable in 1734, and selectman many times. In 
1735 he joined with Peter Weare, Stephen Larrabce, et als., 
in opposing the church call to Eev. Ephraim Keith. When 
Eev. iS'ichola."5 Loriuo- was ordained, he and Andrew Kin<r 
furnished the entei'tainment, for which the town reimbursed 
them to the extent of £20-17-9. In 1742 he acted as mes- ^ 
scnger for Governor Shirley, in transporting some official 
letters from Boston to the Eastern frontier. His journal of 
the trip is preserved in Mass. Archives, Vol. xxxviii., etc. 
He was the first Kepresentative of the town to the General 
Court of Massachusetts. He was Captain of Co. F, Gth Mass. 
Volunteers, Colonel Sylvester Richmond, in the siege of 
Louisburg and the expedition against the French in 1745. 
About 1732 he married Mrs. Hannah Scales, widow of 
William Scales, who had been killed by the Indians some 
years previous. She was received into the church Aug. 8, 
1731. She died 19 May, 17G2. He died without issue, and 
was buried in the old graveyard at North Yarmouth. An 
old slate slab, moss-grown and worn, has this inscription: 
*This perpetuates the memory of Capt. Cornelius Soule, who 
departed this life Oct. ye 20, 1755 in the 52"<^. yr. of hU 
age.' " 

His will dated 3 Sept., 1755, on file in the York Registry,

Caldwell, of Elliot, Me., has issued the fourth number, and 
will continue the publication. Ipswich, Mass., was the staii:- 
ing-point of many Essex count}' families, and the " Hammett 
Papers" are invaluable for reference. It should be borne 
in mind, however, that Mr. Hammett made his collections 
many years ago, and his surmises are not always correct. 
Like Savage, he had to work with the materials then avail- 
able.

NOTES. 

Suffolk Deeds, Vol. IX. The publication of this vol- 
uttie covers the period from 1674 to 1676. This volume 
was printed under the supervision of Mr. Charles A. Drew. 

I We welcome the appearance of the " New Brunswick Maga- 

zine," published by W. K. Reynolds, at St. John. Also 
"American Book Lore," published at Milwaukee by Henry E. 
Legler. The September issue contains an account of the 
library of C. M. L. Burton, of Detroit. 

Hon. Charles J. Mclntire has issued under separate cover 
sketches of Hon. John Read (1680-1749) and Chief-Justice 
(of Nova Scotia) Charles Morris (1711-1781) from both of 
whom he descends. 

The Beverly Historical Society this summer presented two 
statues to the minster at Beverley, England, which are to 
be placed on the west front. 

The " Genealoijical Advertiser," which has reached its 
third issue, appeals strongly to Old Colony people. Mrs. 
Greenlaw is a most efficient ^^enealofi^ist as well as editor. 
We strongly recommend this publication to our readers. 

Genealogy of the Dodge Eamily of Essex County, 
Mass., by Joseph T. Dodge, of Madison, Wis. Second 
Part. The present volume, paged continuously with the 
first, adds over 200 pages of closely printed information to 
the former work. American Dodges descend chiefly from 
either William or Richard Dodge, of Beverl3\ Some descend 
from Tristram Dod^e, who settled on Block Island. In the 
present volume will be found a list of Dodges serving in the 
Revolution and in certain colonial wars, lists which will 
prove of great value to descendants of those persons. Fur- 
ther information is supplied regarding the use of coat armor 
by the English families of the name, and while as yet the 
American family cannot prove their right to use coat armor,

276 NOTES. 

it is not unlikely that that right exists and that patient re- 
search might obtain the needed proof. 

I WISH some information about Ann Wisdom, the third 
white child that was born in the Eno;Iish colony at James- 
town about 1610. Also information in regard to the Pilcher 
family, of Virginia ; what was the given name of that Pilcher 
who married Pheobe Fielding in Virginia, or North Caro- 
lina, about 1750? 

Also about Lucas Powell, who was born at Williamsburg,

A RHYMED BIOGRAPHY OF MARTHA 

WASHING-TON. 



BY MARY VIRGINIA AGNEW. 



Virginia, dear, inspirit thought, while I essay to write 

The fair biography of one whose charms, indeed, invite 

A facile pen, and eloquence, inspired to eulogize 

Virtues, whose truth, to blur or blot, the hand of time defies! 

But ere I sing the praise of her who reigned a queen, supreme — 

Not by hereditary laws, but by a laud's esteem, — 

I faiu would pen a tribute to Virginia, muse divine. 

Whose forests, mountains, glades, and streams alluring scenes 

combine ; 
And where, in seventeen-thirty-two, far from a city's din, 
Was born the subject of this rhyme, my gentle heroine. 
Who, 'mid the grandeur of the hills which shape the famed Blue 

Ridge, 
Was reared an offspring of the house whose sire was John Dan- 

d ridge. 

Virginia's seasons throw a spell of rare enchantment o'er 
Spirits enthralled to feel the charm of nature's faery lore. 
When wild birds note the balmy spring with raptured harmonics, 
And sweetest odors lightly float upon each truant breeze, 
Virginia's world breaks into bloom, and melody, and light. 
Which thrill the heart, and mind, and soul, and trustful hopes 

incite. 
Then warm winds toss the swathdd buds until their leaves unfurl, 
And with their gentle breathing blow the ferns right out of curl ; 
While fields grow green, starred with blue flowers, whereon ini-t- 

spangles lie. 
And ev'ry dewdrop looks as tho' it shrined a bit of sk}'. 
Then orchard trees, aflush with bloom, knee-deep in grasses 

stand — 
And, lightl}^ stirred by breezes which soft vernal airs command,

Their \^•iad-3wung boughs the earth and sky with swirling petals 

strew, 
Which look like shreds of sunset clouds blown 'thwart the ether's 

blue. 

In bonny June, when roses, bright, illume the landscape gay, 
And zephyrs, with their downy wings, brush ev'ry cloud away 
From Heaven's azure, — then Virginia voices ecstasy. 
And fills the heart, attuned to joy, with ravished melody. 

But when is heard in ripened fields the crow's hoarse, wrangling 

caw. 
And purpled berries darkly gleam upon the thorny haw. 
And when bright leaves, encolored-red, wind-snatched from off the 

trees. 
Flit thro' the air like butterflies, chased by the autunm breeze, 
Virginia animates the soul with fluttering desires. 
Till, flhiging off inertia's mask, it, winged with might, aspires 
To realms of effort. Ev'ry leaf that rustles 'neath one's tread 
Then signatures, with fervid chords, that sluggishness is dead, 
When, roused to vast endeavor, erst inactive in the soul. 
One quaffs large draughts of vigored thought from life's energic 

bowl. 

When winter, with its mist of snow, o'erveils the sleeping earth. 
And mantles, with pure graciousness, the fulvid landscape's dearth, 
Virginia's forests show such charm as to the Yule-tide clings. 
And thro' their vasty solitudes a windy spirit sings. 
Tall cedars, pictured Christmas-trees, jewelled with berries blue. 
Look just as tho' dear Santa Claus there all his bushes grew ; 
And holly gleams, like coals of fire, from out the wooded gloom, 
Until the mind, with fancies fed, would certainly assume 
That autumn had on winter's hearth left some glowing embers 
To illume the memory of passed-away Septembers. 
Thus, in Virginia, winter seems a curtain but half-drawn. 
Thro' which one glimpses vistas of the lovely springtime's dawn. 
Which, clad in leaves of living green and bathed in sunlight, seems 
But waiting to entrance the soul with sweeteest vernal dreams. 

Of all Virginia's usages, from Merry England brought. 

The Christmas-tide, in olden days, was with most pleasure fraught,

And, tho* it came but once a, year, it lasted thro* a week, 

And did for all, both high and low, a joyous time bespeak. 

Then notes of busy preparation ev'rywhere were heard — 

And long before the mirthful day a blithe commotion stirred 

In hall and kitchen. Fallow-fields and rime-hung: forests ran"- 

With voice of hunter, bark of dog, and the incessant bang 

Of rifles, when the shrivelled leaves, frost-strung, and brown, and 

sere, 
Cried out beneath the startled tread of the affrighted deer ; 
But when from windows lights gleamed out upon a snowbound 

world. 
And flashed upon the little brooks which erstwhile gently purled 
Adown their fern-fringed pebbled ways, the huntsmen home 

returned 
To spread their trophies out before great fires that brightly burned, 
"Wheuce odor^ from most sav'ry viands, with sylvan perfumes blent. 
Up chimney-places, broad and wide, by whiffs of smoke were sent. 
The woods resounded with axe-strokes, as hickories were hewn. 
Which fell, with musical accord, on sward with crisp leaves strewn, 
And then were sawed into great logs to feed the Yule-tide fire. 
Whose festive light and glow did much the season's joy inspire. 
From mighty oaks the rarely-fabled, mystic mistletoe, 
Which doth upon the mossy limbs of woodland monarchs grow, 
(Like crowns impearled with priceless gems, to diadem old trees, 
Whose heads have borne bleak winter's blast, and summer's frolic 

breeze), 
Was torn awa}' in charming tufts, and. with the holly red, 
Was wreathed in festoons ev'rvwhere, a radiance to shed 
O'er Christmas joy, while on the hearth gay, spurting fagots blazed. 
Whose chymic heat from scented logs delightful incense raised. 
High mantel-shelves were with crow's-foot and trailing ivy hung, 
And then, on Christmas eve, were with a line of stockings strung. 
Fireplaces were in olden times sacred to Kris Kringle — 
And just at dawn, on Christmas morn, when was heard tlie jingle 
Of merry sleigh-bells, all the flames would smoulder on the hearih. 
When down the chimney Kris Kringle would rush with noisy mirib. 
Then all dear ones, both young and old, from near and from afar. 
Would speed them home, led thitherward by that same brilliant

Which o'er the Babe of Bethleliem with adoration shone, 
And glorified the place wTiere lay "the Christ come to atone 
For human sin. On Christmas morning all to church v/ould go 
To praise the great Creator from whose hand all blessings flow, 
And who, in mercy to mankind, did His vast works adorn 
By sending us His only son to grace our Christmas morn.

Were in abundance, and, in truth, were liked by ev'rybody. 
Throughout the week, till the New Year, the neighbors all did try 
In ro^'al feasLings, night and day, each other to outvie. 
At evening then, when firelight glowed, and crackled out sweet

Would ride to balls and tea-drinkings in ornate sedan-chairs, 
Where gay esquires, in scarlet coats, cocked hats, and swell knee-

Would woo fair maidens with such arts as ev'ry age bewitches.

For, idly as a leaf which floats adown some placid stream, 
A fancy, in those leisured times, was twirled into a dream. 
Ah, those were the Dominion's y/itching manorial days, 
When wealthy planters still adhered to England's lordly ways, 
Made simple with the freedom of a quiet country life, 
With all the charm of rural ways and courtesies made rife ! 
Existence in Virginia, then, was with pleasure replete — 
And agriculture was pursued with recompense complete. 

In those remote palmary times, Virginia's Golden Age, — 
Whose gracious mode of happiness inspires tradition's page, — 
Each man's estate an empire was, where master reigned supreme, 
Honored by humble servitude and by respect's esteem. 
Estates were large, by entail held in long continuance, — 
Which love of home and lauds, methinks, doth mightily enhance, — 
And, owned by sons of England's haughty, proud nobility, 
Great style of living vras maintained, and hospitality. 
E'en college bo^'s were catalogued, in those vice-regal days. 
With no regard unto their worth, or manly, studious ways, 
But with respect unto the rank of their sires in the land. 
And to the mode of life which their vast fortunes could command. 

The architecture in those days was planned to last awhile — 

Massive and square, designed correctly in the English style. 

Staircases broad, and carven out of rich mahogany, 

Or, darkly-gleaming, finely-worked from polished ebony. 

Would wind their spiralled elegance from stately halls where mirth 

Was brightened b}' the ruddy flares ascending from tlie hearth 

Of fireplaces of most delightful, genial amplitude. 

Where huge pine knots, ablaze with light, sputtered a gay prelude 

To fancies lit by garish flames, fantastically wrought, 

Wiiich kindled hopes, and were with brightest aspirations fraught. 

Then roofs, sustained by timbers of red cedar, oft rough-hewn, 

Would scent the rooms and corridors like to some wild bestrewn 

With odorous pine-needles — as tho' nature's rapt perfumes, 

Vialled by sprighth' breezes, were decanted in the rooms. 

When Washington, a mere stripling, did mimic battles fight, 
And, in his mind's dreadful warfare, put enemies to flight, 
Martha Dandridge, a little girl, was o'er her samplers bent ; 
And thus absorbed, never, T trow, into the future sent

A RHOIED BIOGRAPHY OF MARTHA WASHINGTON. 283 

Such a long thought as that some day, provincial peace all fled, 
She would by her land's future sire most lovingly be wed. 
To stately ways and fashions born, and reared in affluence, 
Her tastes, innately bred, were fine, but fine without pretence ; 
And she grew up to be a dame of very high degree — 
And, therefore, it was only meet that fate should her decree 
To be the bride of old Virginia's most intrepid son : 
The chivalrous and valorous chieftain, George Washington. 

Tho* down Virginia's closely-written, storied page I pore, 

I find fair Martha's dawning years with obscureness blurred o'er. 

Married to Daniel Parke Custis when only seventeen, 

Her childhood tho' was very brief, but blissful was I ween ; 

And fancy oft shows lier to me, in youth's sweet happy day, — 

When hours are tuned to mirthfulness, and sing a roundelay, — • 

At twilight's brief, bewitching time, when inspirations play. 

And prophesy until they seem to voice a future day — 

And then she's pictured to ray sight in her ancestral hall. 

As dancing with the frolic flames a-flicker on the wall ; 

And as they darted liere and there old portraits to illume, 

Or ran to play with shadows in the corners of the room. 

Perchance her future spoke to her from out prophetic flame, 

And told what fate would write for her on life's fair scroll of fame ; 

For oftentimes our dreams, methinks, are what for us may be 

Designed by kindly Providence to be our destiny — 

And if such dreams, with purpose winged, soar t'ward some fine 

ideal, 
The years will their true meaning with desires attained reveal. 

During the slowly-waged campaign against old Fort Duqucsne, — 
Which British powers from French dominion hoped so much to 

gain,— 
George Washington, as aide-de-camp, gathered his scattered force 
At Winchester, and as the troops lacked discipline, of course. 
He sougiit to train them diligently for the coming war, 
That lack of military science might not them debar 
From victory. His army needed ev'ry requisite. 
And wanting arms, field-equipage, and tents, were quite unfit 
To march U[)on the enemy, so Washington was sent 
To Williamsburg's Assembly, there his wishes to present- 



284 A KHY3IED BIOGHAPHY OF MARTHA WASHINGTON. 

With all his usual promptitude he set off on horseback — 
But, for love-destined Washington, his promptitude, alack ! 
Was hazarded for the first time, for, pierced by Cupid's dart, 
The only time in history he played the laggard's part. 
That journey was of consequence, as I shall now relate, 
And sealed for brave George Washington an enviable fate. 
In crossing the Pamunkey, at tlie ferry, he fell in 
With Mr. Chamberlayne, who did love's artifice begin. 
By, like a typical Virginian, courteous and kind. 
Inviting valiant Washington, with insistence refined, 
To be his gaest at dinner, which our hero, much enthused 
With his commission's character, at first to do refused ; 
But Cupid hath a power with him no virtue can resist — 
Thus Washington, when urged again, consented to assist 
At the eventful dinner where kind Fortune did preside, 
And introduced him to his in futuro lovely bride. 

One Mistress Martha Custis was a guest at Chamberlayne's — 
And so was wily Cupid with his light, florescent chains ! 
This Mistress Martha Custis was a widow rich and young. 
Endowed with rarest beautv, which tradition oft hath sun^. 
She had two little children — these a pretty girl and boy; 
And history assures us did abundant means enjoy. 
Petite in form, and shapely, she possessed a lovely face. 
Which captivating manners with rare eloquence did grace. 
Her hair was a rich brown in hue ; dark hazel were her eyes — 
Which piquancy and tenderness did finely poetize. 
While Washington wild lands surveyed, or fought with savages. 
Or helped to legislate against war's dreadful ravages, 
As wife and mother, widow, too, with purposes aye leal, 
Fair Mistress Custis did best traits of womanhood reveal. 

George Washington, the hero, with his well-afl3rmed reserve, 
Was cas'ly won b}' female charms, as I shall now observe. 
Beauty and wit, and love's assaults, 'mid martial cares will sway 
The burdened heart, and lighten it like sunshine a dark day ; 
And so the heart of Washington, o'erwhehned with anxious fears, 
Ensnarled itself in Cupid's toils, enraptured, it appears. 
The dinner hastened to its close, to one it seemed to dart. 
Since at its close he must, perforce, from Mistress Custis part.

A RHYMED BIOGRAPHY OF MARTHA WASHINGTON. 285 

The aide-de-camp, blindfold by fate, lost sight for once of 

duty. 
And showed outright that vrar's demands sometimes succumb to 

beauty. 
Outside the door his waiting horse did paw and jerk the rein — 
His military servant, Bisliop, called for him in vain. 
For such delay his heart, no doubt, smartly reprimanded — 
None the less, until the morn, his horse was countermanded. 

In New Kent County, and not far from Williamsburg, we're 

told. 
The White House, homo of Mistress Custis, did its pile unfold ; 
And tho* the opportunities permitted to our chief 
For courting Martha Custis were so lamentably brief, 
AYhile faithful to the duties which retained him at his post, 
He embraced ev'ry occasion, and that to the utmost. 
For visiting the IriJy v.'lio had won his love at sisrlit — 
Whom he wooed so devotedly, and witli such manly might, 
That ere they separated, he to go to Fort Duquesne, 
As lovers true they pledged their faith till they should meet 

aajain. 

And then, tho' hostile Indians swarmed round like busy bees. 

And Washington, to run them counter, sent out Cherokees, 

And tho' he did intrepidly the Frenchman's power invade. 

His love for Martha Custis did his ev'ry thought pervade ; 

And armed with tenderness for her he smiled at war's turmoil — 

Sweet mutual love and confidence repaid him for all toil. 

Once Fort Duquesne made subject, and French warfare suspended, — 

'Gainst whose might the colonists for British rights contended, — 

George Washington to Mistress Custis joyfully returned. 

And found that in her heart for him love's light divinely burned. 

At the White House, and in the year seventeen-fifty-nine, 
When fleecy snows of January fell down thick and fine, 
George Washington and Martha Custis were together wed, 
And with festivities were on life's rapid journey sped. 
The marriage was a merry one, in old Virginia's style, — 
Where social pleasures did the hearts of wedding-guests beguile ; 
And ev'ry servant on the place did of the joy partake — 
And each received a silver coin, and piece of wedding-cake.

The bride was gowned in rich white silk — the groom wore uniform, 

And after a fine supper they together did perform 

The stntely-stepping minuet, to orchestra ideal, 

Composed of negro minstrels, who discharged their part with zeal. 

The musicians, with frenzied bow, and chime of toe and heel, 

Then played cotillons for the guests, and the Virginia reel ; 

And while their bodies were convolved with tuneful ecstasies. 

And moved in furied rhythm with their jingling melodies, 

Phrenatic waves of music rolled from rafter unto rafter, 

And broke in echoes on the ear like concord mad with laughter ; 

While from each bow winged notes appeared to circle to the ceiling, 

Sweet melody personified, — pure harmony revealing. 

Until the morn the darkies played for marriage-guests to dance, 

And with their own enjoyment did their music's spell enchance. 

At the White House the wedded pair remained until the spring ; 

But when the merry forest birds again were on the wing, 

And bluebirds trilled, exultantly, tlieir wild, ecstatic notes, 

And pretty robins sang away as tho' to burst their throats, 

Amid a chorus of rapt songs, the music of the grove. 

The lovers true, thro* sylvan aisles, to old Mount Vernon drove — 

And there began a blissful life of love and tenderness. 

Which God with much well-being and with righteous joy did bless. 

Now Martha Vrashingtou, endowed with wise, well-bred reserve. 

Could her instinctive dignity with kindliness preserve — 

'Twas, therefore, with benevolence, tinged v/ith severity, 

That she ruled husband, children, friends, and home so perfectly. 

For many years, at Blount Vernon, she lived in handsome style, 

And did its lovely solitude with visitors beguile. ; 

To evidence the lavishness which at such times prevailed, . ; 

I'll chronicle a " tale of woe *' by her dear lord detailed : 

When once Mount Vernon was besieged with visitors galore 

Our chief, in a pacific way, did expenses deplore ; 

" For who would think," he naively writes, confiding in a friend, 

**That with one hundred and one cows, with pasture without end, 

I must, perforce, buy butter for my guests' and family's use ! " 

Therefore I argue many did her graciousness abuse. 

A chariot, and horses, four, she drove where'er she went — 

Which, with the servants' liveries, were 'way from England sent.

Sweet Ladj' "Washington, as she by courtesy was called. 

With kindly words and benign ways the hearts of all enthralled. 

Her charities were numberless, wisely administered, 

And she a quiet rural life to gayeties preferred. 

Society of those fine days frequently'' protested 

That Martha Washington was with character invested. 

She was a noted housewife, a consummate hostess, too, 

And often while she entertained, her busy fingers flew. 

As, armed with knitting-needles, she did dainty meshes thread, 

Or with a bit of handi»vork moments with fleetness sped — 

And whether she were knitting, or were sewing on a seam. 

Bright wit and fancy scintillated with her needle's gleam. 

She did ornate embroideries, or spun thro' happy hours. 

And cultivated, with delight, the dear, old-fashioned flowers. 

She had a cat whose history, times unnumbered written. 
Hath v.ith her vast kind-heartedness feline lovers smitten. 
For fear her cat would in despair its precious life consume. 
Because it could not at all times gain entrance to her room, 
She had a hole cut in her door, just large enough at that, 
To give accession, fond and free, to her beloved cat. 

Now George and ]\Iartha Washington devout church-people 

were. 
As their contemporaries do, with great concord, aver. 
Tho* strict Episcopalians, they had no narrow views, 
And did their chosen creed with love for other creeds transfuse. 
At Christ Church and at Pohick Clmrch they communicated, 
And were with awe for God's command., deepl}' penetrated. 
They graced the Christian character with precept and with act — 
And trained the Custis children, by a mutual compact. 
In Bible and Church History, and with them oft did pray, 
Instructing them in catechism in the olden way ; 
For Washington a father was, in truth, in very deed. 
To Johu and Patsey Custis — his dear wife and he agreed 
In rearing them to be a blessing in the daily life, 
And this they did most lovingly, without unseemly strife. 

The old Potomac river then boasted aquatic state. 
When barges, manned with servitors from each lordly estate, 
Would carry dames and cavaliers, and lords and ladies too, 
To tea-drinkings along the shores, to dinners not a few ; 



288 A EHYiVIED BIOGRAPHY OF MAKTHA WASHINGTON. 

Aod often Mistress Washington, in her famed coach-and-four, 
With postilions in livery outriding her before, 
Would joLirncy to Annapolis^ or to Richmond, we're told, 
Where the distinguished gentry did fine balls and parties hold. 

When fifteen years of such a life had all too swiftly flown 

The seeds of discord and of strife were by Great Britain sov/n ; 

For British interference growled a menacing prelude, 

Which filled the hearts of provincials with dread incertitude. 

From mere commercial selfishness — for the land's vexation — 

England levied on all things most unjust taxation, 

Which 'mongst the colonists aimed most at the great merchant 

class. 
And brought the navigation, trade, and sugar act to pass, 
Which hurried on the bloody war which gave this country birth, 
And showed Great Britain what our sires thought independence 

worth ! 

The quiet of Mount Vernon was with rudeness broken through 

When British powers, indignant, made a horrible ado 

Because the outraged colonists most nobly did agree 

That, since it was so sorely taxed, they'd import no more tea, 

And covenanted, with determined unanimity. 

At Boston Town, in December, in seventeen-seventy-three, 

That they would throw their whole cargo of tributable tea. 

Without regard to England's ire, directly in the sea ; 

And on this famous tea-party at Boston did depend 

The League which did with English powers all business suspend. 

Virginia, first of all the States to put its armor on. 
Now, as a man, with zeal commenced a warlike mien to don ; 
And in the blithesome vernal year, in seventeen-seventy-five. 
When forests with the trill of birds were joyously alive, 
And balmy airs and tender showers had recreated spiing. 
And ev'ry thing did of the year's bright resurrection sing, 
George Washington to home and family bade a long adieu. 
And to the war, sped on by love, with martial courage flew. 

A man's a patriot when he, for love of his dear land. 
Renounces home and family, injustice to withstand. 
And for his country's lawful cause doth manfully defy 
A coward host which dares its righteous freedom to deny !

But are not women patriots when they, by home-ties thralled, 
Are not, impassioned loyalists, by base-born fears appalled, 
But, whcu war summous loved ones to combat tyrannic might, 
Remain at home, brave-heartedly, their own battles to fight — 
Those conflicts with forebodings, with long, dismal hours which 

creep 
Thro' burdened days, and awful nights, when they scarce dare to

But with necessity, aye stern, subdue the heart's wild care. 
And gather strength from out the very grimness of despair?

Despotic foes who thus menace their country and their right — 
E'en tho' it be that their dear ones, with armor ever bright. 
Are destined never to return from freedom's splendid fight. 
And Martha Washington, indeed, a patriot I'd call 
In that she feared not loneliness, wliich weakness doth appall. 
But, shielded by her confidence in God's unerring truth, 
Was sure that He would save His own from violence and ruth. 
For libert}' she braved herself to bear a threatened life — 
And thereby proved her sacred right to be a soldier's wife. 
She realized that home without George Washington was drear — 
Of war, and war's calamities, she felt no craven fear. 
Tho* often warned of hostile threats to lay Mount Vernon waste. 
And cautioned, for her safety's sake, to leave her home with haste, 
She willed to stay, with faithful slaves, on her plantation lone. 
Where she dispensed large charities, and, with no outward moan. 
Prayed fervently to the All-Father for the war's surcease. 
Which promised independence, with a nobly-purchased peace. 
Indubitably she possessed a courage unsur[)assed. 
For when the whole Potomac was by vengeful acts harassed, 
And English ships marked out Mount Vernon for their worst 

menace. 
Of fear for her dear home, or self, she evidenced no trace ; 
And when the neighborhood desired to arm in her defence, 
Considering the rumored danger without consequence, 
She did, with gratitude sincere, refuse their proffered aid. 
And with God-vouchsafed fortitude right at Mount Vernon stayed, 
Until, in fine, the war prolonged, and winter coming on. 
She joyously prepared to join her hero, Washington. 



290 A RHY3IED BIOGRAPHY OF MARTHA WASHINGTON. 

The wish to see him once again beyond all bounds then grew, 

And, swiftly as her coach-and-four could speed, she to him flew. 

The fame of Washington was such that her advance was slow, 

For guards of honor followed her wherever she did go ; 

And at each halting-place she was detained by courtesies 

Extended by her countrymen who wished their chief to please. 

Postilions, in fine liveries of scarlet and pure white, 

In front of her gay coach-and-four afforded a rare sight — 

And after a long progress thro' the province she arrived 

At Cambridge, where the pleasantness of camp-life she revived. 

Her presence at headquarters made its life grow brighter far. 

For 'mid its gloom her hope and courage shone out like a star ! 

She entertained the officers in an old-fashioned way. 

Which ever did kindness of heart and refinement display. 

Her dinners grew so popular that rivalry ensued 

Hegarding which of all her friends each function should inchide. 

Such dinners were of simple sort, made fine with elegance. 

Presided o'er with tact which doth all form with grace enhance. 

First came a course of vegetables, served, of course, with meat — 

Then pastry of some kind or other, or a plain sweetmeat. 

Topped off with hick'ry nuts and apples, olden-time dessert, 

With social chat and reminiscence pleasantly begirt ; 

And after dinner Mistress Washington lierself would serve 

Coffee, the beverage which doth a cheerful mood conserve. 

The dinner over, and without the least bit of display. 

The hostess made her knitting-needles musically play 

The old, sweet obligato to social conversation — 

A pleasant, clinking melody for light dissertation. 

Mistress Washington in camp, and warfare then suspended. 
Regimental gardens were, with wisdom, recommended. 
With Martha Washington the idea met with warmest praise — 
And, setting the example, she at once began to raise 
On one side of her residence all flowers which then were grown — 
And opposite she had the ground for vegetables sown ; 
Then, gowned in brocade petticoat and panniers stiff and wide. 
She did with enthused enerarv her leisure time divide 
Between her flowers and garden-crop, the' I would fain opine 
That t'ward the spot where posies grew her heart did most 
incline. 



A KHYMED BIOGRAPHY OF MARTHA WASHINGTON. 291 

When the war with British powers was virtually ended, 

And Washington, at Valley Forge, had active work suspended, 

The' winter ruled both earth and sky with lierce inclemency. 

And naked hunger stalked abroad with abject misery. 

Fair Mistress Martha Washington to headquarters repaired, 

And all her husband's discomforts with noble courage shared : 

And it was during her sojourn that time at Valley Forge 

That to a friend she did upon her trials there enlarge. 

*' The General's apartments here are very small," she writes, 

*' And 3'et to dinners and to teas he graciously invites 

His officers and friends, although, to either sup or dine. 

He must his invitations to a chosen few confine.'* 

At Valley Forge her time was passed in knitting socks, a store, 

In visiting among the sick, and doing for the poor 

Whate'er their needs demanded, — for most pitiful was she 

Toward the wretched soldiery in their adversity. 

The soldiers' armament exchanged for enforced idleness. 

Their sufferin^rs evoked in her comnassioned tenderness. 

While Washington was importuning Congress to furlough 

The waiting army, which, when paid, homeward would gladly go. 

Like incarnated charit}', clothed in humility, 

His wife relieved its sore distress with kindly sympathy. 

*Tis easier by far to fisjht than with stacked arms to wait. 
And destitution in an army's rank to contemplate ! 
The Continental forces then were in a fearful state — 
And Mistress Martha Washington, historians relate. 
Shared in her husband's wretchedness, and his solicitude 
Because the army was in need of money, clothes, and food. 
Often, no doubt, from her dear eyes flowed tides of sympathy — 
For how could she all-tearless view brave-hearted misery? 
While Washington combated, the land's fortunes still at stake. 
He risked his life most willingly for his loved country's sake ; 
But pitiful, he grew unnerved by such distress menaced 
Against an army whose condition woefull}' disgraced 
A Congress blind to all its wants, who could its needs behold, 
And yet its hard-earned pay ^vith frigid unconcern withhold. 
The army's dissolution near; it powerless to act; 
And government indifferent to its solemn compact — 
Since indigence is to revolt a very sure prelude, 
No wonder that hearts mutinied against ingratitude !

Imas^iiie Martha Wasliintrton — the army in revolt, I 

Sedition threatening to break out like a thunderbolt | 

Of forced rebellion — 'mongst such men as even then would bleed I 

To free their land from tyrann}', and England's unjust greed ; 1 

But who were left to abjectness, while Congress failed to see | 

That such hard-hearted apathy was breeding mutiny ! | 

But time flew on and sweetest peace was joyfully declared — 
When George and Martha Washington with thankfulness repaired 
To beautiful Mount ^'eruon, and were recompensed at last 
For all the woe and suffering of a disordered past. 

And then, thank God, from mighty throes of patriotism born, 

An independent nation did this world of ours adorn, 

Which introduced a period of national display, 

When social codes of refinement exerted potent sway ! 

Then gentlemen wore velvets, silks, ribbons, aye, and laces, — 

And thus dressed out did much affect courtly airs and graces. 

Their scarlet cloaks, and ruflled shirts, and nicely-powdered wigs | 

Adorned true men, tho' thus attired they looked somewhat like ;; 

prigs. ' I 

Most lovely dames, with hair drawn high and with large combs | 

bedecked, 4 

In flower'd gowns of meagre cut, short-waisted and lovr-necked, I 

Enchanting were, and passing sweet, tho', like old-tinie brocade, f 

Their manners, while so elegant, were rather stiff and staid. | 

My heroine did not for long sweet rural peace enjoy, | 
For Washington, the warrior, whom glory did annoy, | 
In seventeen-eightv-nine was by his grateful land proclaimed | 
Its President, to rule the nation by his skill reclaimed | 
From foreign powers. The country liked his craft of statesman- 
ship, I 
And the intelligence which did his ev'ry act equip. f 
Both George and Martha Washington possessed those qualities | 
Which well enabled them to govern their small world with ease, f 
High-breeding, and calm dignity, culture of mind and heart, f 
Which to distinction ever do such influence impart ! § 
George Washington's real preference was for plantation life — | 
He loved the forest's wilding ways, with inspiration rife ; f 
And Martha Washington, like him, was fond of nature's joys — | 
Of its rare trick of doing things, which charms and never cloys !

But when first lady of the land — "unto the manner born*' — 
She did her elevated rank transcendently adorn. 
"While Washington was President she ev'rywhere did ride 
Behind six horses, all pure white, by twos ranged side by side. 
Her carriage was cream-colored, with its panels painted o'er 
With medallions depicting well the changing seasons four. 
Her servants wore green liveries faced daintily with white — 
In truth her equipage, entire, admirance did invite I 
She with perfection, it is said, her prim receptions held, 
Where ev'ry one the very height of courtliness beheld. 
Mingled with rare simplicity married to regal grace, 
Comporting with a republic and her exalted place. 
She offered to all visitors, without formality. 
Plum-cake and coffee, or, mayhap, the reinstated tea; 
And with fine tact, and wifely care, at 9 P.M. would hint 
That it was full time to adjourn, then, with a plnj'ful glint 
Of diplomacy, she would add that Washington, the brave. 
To early hours, for his health's sake, was forced to be the slave. 

When President, in New York first Washington resided — 

And there Martha, his winsome wife, graciously presided 

Over the house executive, wliere refinement and state, 

With social pleasures, did the world of fashion animate. 

He lived in Philadelphia tho', throughout the second term 

That he was this land's President, and that term did confirm 

The truth that Lady Washington was the consummate peer 

Of any lady living, and her manners did endear 

Her to the countrv whereof brave Gcorsje Washino-ton was sire — 

Tho' to a public sphere in life she never did aspire. 

Patrician Martha Washington, on old traditions bred. 
Inherited from British sires, could never bear, 'tis said, 
The Democrats, who in those days, old chronicles aver, 
Than the party called Federal far less distinguished were. 
When absent once she home returned, and found that while away 
Her sweet grand-daughter, Nellie Custis, who was bright and gay. 
Had entertained a visitor, whose perfumed head had lain 
Against her new straw-colored wall and left an uglj^ stain, — 
With angry scorn, condemningl}', she with disdain exclaimed : 
*' All other than a Democrat, I vow, would be ashamed

294 A RHYMED BIOGRAPHY OF MARTHA WASHINGTON. 

To mark my pretty wall-paper with his good-for-aaught head ! '^ 

And if those words, coutemptuous, were by her tongue e'er sped,. 

It only shows that human hearts are full of prejudice, 

And that men oft, when swayed thereby, the law of kiuduess miss. 

With indignation she did aye the newspapers condemn, 

Because they did, in coarse wood-cuts, her husband's acts contemn ; 

And when they pictured him as placed upon the guillotine, 

Like the French king, her ire thereat, on dit^ was very keen. 

So, fancy her seraphic joy when ^Yashington refused 

To serve as President again ; tho' heartily infused 

With gratitude for the esteem of his beloved land. 

He, with great resolution, took a well-determined stand ! 

Long years of active service past, he now desired to spend 

His days with Martha Washington, in ways which far transcend 

The cares and vast perplexities of an official life, 

So hc-^lcct^d about with fnnlt-findinc: and universal strife. 

In seventeen-ninety-six it was, in brilliant-hued September, 

That Washington wrote his " Address of Farewell " all remember ; 

'Twas written, too, at Mount Vernon, where he did oft repair, 

That he might tliere awhile forget the world's malignant care ; 

And we can picture him full well, b}' kindly nature screened. 

As from the freedom of his life he inspiration gleaned 

For the " Address " whose finished grace hath thrilled the hearu 

of all, 
Which severed him from politics, and that beyond recall ; 
But which to Martha Washington brought untold happiness, 
Apart from this world's unkind taunts, and cold unfriendliness. 
Until her death I^Iount Vernon proved a calm haven of rest, 
Where days free from anxiety were filled with sweetest zest, 
Where friends were ever welcome, and the family life replete 
With intellectual pursuits and sentient joys which greet 
All those in love with nature, who in quietude delight, — 
Which doth '* a feast of reason and a flow of soul " invite. 

The true type of womankind a love of style confesses — 

And such, no doubt, would like to hear something of the dresses 

Once worn by Martha Washington, who, trul}^ feminine, 

To silks and ribbons, feathers, lace, and such things did incline. 

Two gowns she wore were of brocade, yellow and green in tone, 

AVhose risquces tints her beauty rare did graciously condone ;

Another gown was of striped silk, fawn-colored and maroon, 
The lighter bands bestrewn with flowers like blossomed days ot 
June. 

Her laces looked like filmy webs by cunning spiders wrought, 
Which in midsummer one oft sees, sprayed with mist-gems, and 

taut. 
With tense strands spun from twig to twig of some rose-bush ia 

bloom. 
Whose blows the impearled gossamers with pale-flushed sparkles 

lume. 
One fan she had she sure did wear with her gown of striped silk, 
For of the lighter lines therein the fan's hue was the ilk, — 
*Twas fawn-colored, wilh ivory sticks, its surface painted o'er 
With an embellished pedestal, whose top five figures bore. 
Her slipper heels were silver tipped, cut high in the French style, — 
And when she danced their shimmer did, no doubt, all eyes be- 
guile — 
And, oh, her pretty costumes did a witching grace impart 
Unto her excellence of soul and lovingnesB of heart ! 

An anecdote I'll now relate which demonstrates that fun 
Was not beyond the province of intrepid Washington; 
And as the narrative displays tlie tenderness of heart 
Belonging to my heroine, it herein hath a part. 
Once on a time the sculptor Wright at ]Mount Vernon appeared, — 
By love of fame and lucre to that peaceful harbor steered, — 
For he desired to mould a bust of the redoubted chief. 
Which i\Iartha Washington's affright brought very near to grief. 
Now Wright, intent upon his work, had placed upon the bed 
His patient model, whose fine head and face he then had spread 
With a thick coat of plaster, moist, when thro' the doorway came 
Dame Washington, who, when she saw her lord, did loud exclaiiii 
With mingled terror and disma}'', for she could see no fun 
In any one maltreating thus her dear George Washington. 
Her unfeigned fright was ludicrous, and well-nigh did beguile 
George Washington, tho' so besmeared, into a ready smile; — 
The smile was stifled, but, alas! its enforced suppression, 
Gave to the bust, sculptured by Wright, a burlesque expression. 
Which all have noticed, ignorant that the odd twitcli betrayed 
The love of fun inherent in George Washington so staid.

296 A KHYMED BIOGRAPHY OF M^iHTHA WASHINGTON. 

George Washington, the patriot, the statesman, and the man, — . 
"Whose services in peace and war the nation's hopes outran, — 
Passed peacefully away from earth in seveuteen-ninety-nine, 
When he exchanged his earthly state for majesty divine. 
As Martha Washington for days beside his bedside stayed, 
And, with submission to God's will, for his recovery prayed, 
'Tis certain that for the first time her wifel}' courage failed. 
And that before swift Providence she sorrowfully quailed. 
But when they told her that the hero, Washington, was dead, 
She cried aloud : '* Now it is well, Fve nothing more to dread ! " 
She seemed no longer for this w^orld nor for its joys to care, 
But for her own transition hence, with wisdom did prepare. 
Her will was made, wherein she manumitted all her slaves, 
AVhich act with kind humanity her precious life engraves. 
For three years more she lingered here, when her soul did ascend, 
A raptured, blest eternity in Paradise to spend ! 

The rose, the sweetest of all flowers, tlio' briery its stem, 

Is for true womanhood, methiuks, a fitting diadem • — 

The royal mark of beauty, with strong character combined, 

The seal of purity with power to fight all wrong entwined ! 

For character doth never grow from mere docility. 

But, beautiful, is brambled o'er with supreme energy 

To do what's right tho' it offend the code of courtesy ; 

And righteously to stab with scorn the insinceritj- 

Which social usage oft demands, and for integrity — 

The soul's divine insignia, its noblest blazonry — 

To barter friendship, howe'er sweety all luxury and ease, 

And, rather than the world to strive Almighty God to please ! 

And like a rose, lo.vely and pure, and wonderfully sweet, 

Fair Martha Washington was with its attributes replete. 

Possessing thorns of character, I venture, me, to right 

With Christian courage all the wrong menaced by worldly might. 

Therefore no one is worthier than Martha Washington 

To be enshrined among the pure in our hearts' Parthenon — 

And fitter pilgrimage, I ween, to tomb is never made 

Than to Mount Vernon, where beneath the leafy, branching shade 

Of trees primeval, close beside the Pater Patricje, 

Her body rests, there sepulchred until that final day 

When virtues exercised on earth shall win plenary praise. 

Oh ! then, when God shall the redeemed with exaltation raise,

I doubt me not that he will say to Martha Washington : 

*'*Thou good and faithful servant,' I pronounce thy work 'well 

done!'" 
The acme of sweet graciousness, the crown of womankind, 
May we in Martha Washington a rare ensample find !

NOTES. 

The northern part of Carolina was settled by English coming at first from 
Virginia, and extended as far south as the Pamlico and Neuse. About IGDO 
some Frencii Trotestants from Virginia began settlements about the l-'amlico 
and were speedily juined by others of their countrymen, who made their 
homes on the Neuse and Trent. In 1710 Germans from Ileidelburg and 
vicinity on tlie Neckar in the Grand Duchy of Baden settled in North 
Carolina, and joined with the Swiss company of Christopher, Baron de 
Graff enreid, in the settlement of Newbern. Hawks says the English at this

a belt inhabited by the French, and south of all the German palatines and 
Swiss. 

Tlie northern and western portions of the State, in the uplands, were the 
seat of numerous settlements of Irish, Scotch, und Scotch-Irish, Avhen that 
emigration turned toward America, beginning about 1716. 

Tlie counties were early separated into parishes, and the taxes were im- 
posed by the vestry men, who, as in Virginia, had the local authority; but it 
is at the county seats that the genealogist will find the widest field for investi- 
gation. 

The county records are in a fair state of preservation and quite generally 
preserved. 

As early as 17.52 good laws existed regarding the record of vital statistics. 
Marriage licenses were required, and marriage bonds required to be de[)osited 
with the clerk of courts. Marriages were to be performed by the clergy of 
the church of England or, in their absence, by a justice of the peace. Each 
parish was supposed to have a register of births, marriages, and deaths, kept 
by the recorder, or by the clerk of the church ; but few, if any, such registers 
were actually kept. 

The records of North Carolina from 1622 to 1790 are being printed, the 
whole to be followed by an exhaustive index prepared by Dr. Stephen B. 
Weeks. The periotl prior to 177G is covered by ten volumes. These volumes 
represent all the documentary material that it has been possible to find for 
the poriorl covered. It includes report^ of enrly explorers, reports and cor- 
respondence of governors, correspondence of the Board of Trade, court 
records, laws, journals of the Legislature and of the Provincial Congresses, 
and other papers of interest. 

North Carolina State Kecords, 1776-1700, continuing the above, is filled 
with the same class of material, report.s and correspondence, journals of the 
Legislatures and of the Constitutional (Conventions of 17^8 and 178!>. It 
contains tlie ducurnentary history of North Carolina in the \\'ar of the Revo- 
lution. The last volume of the State series will be an exhaustive index to 
both series. In addition, it is there that the api)lications for land patents, etc., 
are to bo found, togetlier with the official action thereon. The State has also 
published a list of the State officials to 1674, which may be found in the 
"Legislative Manu;il an i Tolitical Register" for that year. 

Rosters of the offic?rs in the Revolution, a'l troops of the War of 1812, 
Mexican War and Civil War, have been published by the State. 

** Most of the seventeenth century records have been printed in the 'Colo- 
nial Records,' but there are many land grants on record in Pasquotank and 
Perquimans counties prior to 1710Avhich have never been exploited. Some 
of the Pa.«quotank records, particularly the wills, were burned in 186?, those of 
Bladen and Washington counties have also been burned, and I think in Hert- 
ford county. .Many of the early land grants are on file at Raleigh, also many 
of the early wills, oidy a porlii)n of which are recorded The present Secre- 
tary of State is trving to get this material into better shape than it has been. 
The records of Camden, Pasquotank, Chowan. Halifax. Warren, Granville, 
Wake, Chatham, Person, and Orange counties are in good condition (from 
personal examination), and I think those of Craven and Kowan also." —

NOTES. 

Correction. — In our June issue we described the valu- 
able list of Danvers (Salem Village) marriages, by Mr. 
Preston, as being copied from the records in the County 
Clerk's office. The original record is in the Salem City Hall. 

Public Record Offices. — In the December, 1897, issue 
we printed an article upon the care and custody of public 
records. Attention was called to the necessity of providing 
places of deposit in central locations, where the records of 
various descriptions could be cared for and arranged by com- 
petent archivists. The public record office in London and 
the registries in Dublin and Edinburgh are examples of what 
can be done in this direction. Every State should establish 
such a depository, in which could be arranged the State, 
county, town, and parish records. In a future number we 
shall attempt to describe the methods in vogue in the British 
public record offices. Agitation for the removal of the ancient 
probate and parish registers in England to the public record 
office in London is constantly maintained. When that great 
good is accomplished students will rejoice. 

Scottish Records. — The article on Scottish records by 
the editor, in our July-August issue, elicited the following 
comment from the accomplished genealogical scholar, Walter 
MacLeod, of Edinburgh : 

"Indeed, I wonder at the precision with which you have

grasped the subject, which to most visitors proves too com- 
plicated for comprehension. In regard to the causes of 
migration to America you do not seem to have referred to 
the Scots who settled in Yirijinia and South Carolina, whither 
they were shipped in the reign of Charles II. because they 
would not deny the faith to please him. Not a few of them 
were branded or mutihitcd. New Jersey was also one of the 
places they were sent to. Some returned after the revolu- 
tion of 1G88, but those who remained were not few. The 
Darien expeditions between 1694 and 1806 were also the 
occasion of many young people going to and settling in 
the States, chiefly of the South." 

The Old Berry Tavern, Danvers. — In these days 
there is a revival of taverns situated in the country districts 
and made accessible by bicycles and trolley cars. The old 
tavern in Danvers is one of these. It stands on the site of 
an older house erected as early as 1741, and is opposite the 
historic Pa2;e house. There General Gai2:e had his official 
headquarters in 1774, and on its roof was held the tea 
party, to avoid the interdict against tea in the house, which 
has been commemorated in verse by Lucy Larcom. 

The Berry Tavern has been nearly rebuilt by the present 
owner, and pleasant, commodious suites are available. 

There is no section in eastern Massachusetts from which 
so many beautiful drives and walks may be taken as Dan- 
vers. The old houses of witchcraft times, and earlier, yet 
remain. Quaint old places abound. From Folly Ilill, on 
a pleasant day, the waves may be seen breaking on the 
shores of Quincy. Beverly, Wenham, Salem, and Tops- 
. field are all within a half hour's ride. Danvers was formerly 
known as Salem Village, and is still a typical New England 
town in spite of its proximity to Boston.

[Authors and publishers are invited to send their publications 
for notice in this magazine. Books noticed in this department 
may be ordered through this magazine.] 

The First Republic in America, an account of the Origin of this 
Nation, written from the records (1624), then concealed by the Council, 
rather than from the histories licensed by the Crown. By Alexander 
Brown, D.C.L. Boston, 1898, Houghton, ]\Iifflin & Co, 8vo, pp. xxiv. 
688. 

Students of early American and especially Virginian history are already 
under a great debt to Dr. Brown for his " Genesis of the United States, "which 
appeared in 181)0. This present work is based upon the records of the Vir- 
ginian Company which survive* and the collection of material made for the 
" Genesis." 

The pplection of a title for the present book is certainly unfortunate. Colo- 
nial Virginia v.as by no means a republic. f The colony was established | 
Tinder a charter from the king in 1G06, and sustained during the trying period I 
which followed by a powerful group of English leaders, who drew tlieir sup- f 
port largely, if not wholly, from that section of the English people wlio were I 
opposed to the pretensions of the Stuarts. i 

The charters of 1609 and 1G12 were those under which the colony became I 

self-reliant. It was under tlie second of those charters that the first repre- I 

eentative assembly (1G18) in America was instituted. Thus the beginnings % f 

of an American Commonwealth were planted in fertile soil, but a soil not I 

as favorable as that of New P^ngland for the development of republican 
institutions. 

The " Genesis " covers the period 1605 to 1616 ; the present work the period 
from 1605 to 1627, from the second year of the reign of James I. to the 
second year of the reign of Charles I. It is the history of English coloniza- 
tion under King James ; for the history of the more or less futile attempts at 
settlement in New England and the successful Plymouth settlement are inti- 
mately connected with the proceedings of the Virginia Company. 

The evident partiality of the writer to any narrative which detracts from 

♦The original records of the company are believed to have been destroyed soon 
after their confiscation by the Privy Council. A copy had been made in the interests 
of Sandys and Soutliampton, covering the period 1619-1624, which now rests among 
the national archives at Washington. WilHara Stith used the copy in preparing his 
history oi Virginia published in 1717, the first use maile of them by an historian. The 
United States procured the manuscript from Thomas JcUerson in 1814. It comprises 
741 folio pages, bound in two volumes. 

t The chaitcr of I'lOG left the government of the company under the control of the 
king and Privy Council, while those of 1609 and 1612 chartered the company as a 
corporation, and allowed it to manage its own atTaiis independent of royal control, 
except in state matters of importance. The Council in Virginia wan controlUd hjt t^^ 
Coundl in London. The first governor under the second charter. Lord Dc la Ware, 
was granted absolute powers. (Page 123.) 

J "The popular chrtrters and other legal instruments of the London Company for 
Virginia were drafted by Sir Edwin Sandys, assisted by other lawyers and politicians^ 
among the progressive thinkers of that period, who also designed a popular form ol 
government for the colony, and these documents formed the original basis for civil 
and religious liberty iu the new world." (Preface, page xix.)

the value of the services of the roraantic adventurer, Capt. John Smith,* is 
evident on nearly every page. The reader is fore-vrarned in the preface that 
no mercy is to be shown the man to whom, in the author's opinion, is due an 
utter misconception of the influences which prevailed to build up the colony. 
Smith is presented in colors which are entirely in variance with the character 
with which he is usually invested by historians. 

Whatever were the faults of Capt. John Smith, he was selfish, bombastic, 
and time-serving, for he was but a type of the soldier of fortune, it is evident 
that he possessed great executive ability, and his faults were undoubtedly 
matched by those of the colonists with whom he was at odds during his resi- 
dence in Virginia. The spirit of the times gave great license to personal 
attacks of the grossest sort. 

The story is written in chronological order, and lengthy extracts are quoted 
verbatim from contemporaneous narratives, petitions, and the com()any's 
records. Tlie author has not hesitated to liberally insert his own views of 
the subject where evidence is lacking, but the reader is plainly impressed that 
those are the personal views of the author. 

The management of the company in London was largely in the hands of 
the party opposed to the court party. The meetings of the company were 
prolific of political discussion, and while we doubt the assumption of Dr. 
Brown that their principles were republican, there is no doubt but that the 
king considered them as seditious. 

Sir Edwin Sanlys. Avho drew up the charters of 1G09 and 1^)12, was the 
leador of the oi>,)0.- iiion in I'arllau^.eut. lie is described ])y Dr. Brown, quot- 
ing Ileylyn, as being oi)posed to the government of a monarchy and imbued 
with the Genevan [)rinciples of civil and religious liberty. 

The court party in tlie company finally prevailed, the arrest of Sandys and 
confiscation of tiie company's records, and finally quo warranto proceedings, 
culminated in the rei;uniption of the charter by the Crown (ir.24). 

The events relating to the colony, both in Virginia and in England, are 
closely followed by the author, and his deductions may be safely followed to 
a great extent. It is unfortunate that the lack of references to sources of in- 
formation deprives the reader from e^!timating Dr. Brown's judgment at its 
true Avorth, and the uncritical student of Virginian history cannot easily 
verify the quotations or judge of the correctness of the views advanced. 

The apparent bias of the writer against the proceedings of the royalist 
party, while it attracts the sympathies of the reader, leaves a lingering sus- 
picion of prejudice wliich is harmful to the book. 

Smith is responsible for the statement, supplied by Kolfe, that the first 
negro slaves in)ported into Virginia were brought by a Dutch man-of-war 
duringthe latter part of .August, UJli). Dr. Brown shows that the ship" Treas- 
urer," in which the Earl of Warwick was interested, had been engaged in busi- 
ness of a somewhat piratical nature, and had been concerned in slaving. .She 
came to Virginia in .Sejitem.ber, 101'.). conveying the Dutchman mentioned by 
Smith, which in fact was more an English than Dutch ship. Her commander 
was English and so were part of her crew. Her character as a man-of-war 
was probably sustained by one of the popular letters-of-marque issued by the 
Prince of Orange to any vessel which would cruise against the Spaniards. 
Such ships were practically pirates, and the " Treasurer " was not far removed 
from the same category. T)r. Brown claims it was the " Treasurer" which 
brought the slaves, and that the stigma was cast upon the Dutchman to save 
the Earl. 

The part which Spain took in attempting to prevent the establishment of 
the colony is clearly revealed. Her ministers in London were indefatigable in

tive, the reader is refeircd to the October issue of the" Virginian Magazine of History 
and Biography." For the circumstances under which Smith's book Avas publislied, see

. procuring information relating to the plans of the English, and urging the 
Spanish monarch to oust the colonists. Koman Catholic Spain claifnt^d the 
territory and conM not look on with equanimity while a Protestant colony was 
established. Spanish agents were untiring in stirring up the natives to oppose 
the English, in much the same manner followed by Koman Catholic France in 
opposing the advance of the English in New England. 

it was due in a great measure to the opposition of Spain which led to the 
granting of the charter which gave the management of the colony to tlie com- 
pany. King James would thus be able to disavow the colony if necessary, 
while if successful he, with England, would profit. 

A feature of the indes, which is excellent, is the starring of names of per- 
sons whose biographies are given in the " Genesis." Under " ships " there are 
two columns of references to ships trading or touching at Virginian ports. 
Under tiie entry " first " are indexed such references as the " first marriage," 
*' first gentlewoman," " first charter," etc., a most convenient arrangement. 

The impartial reader will certainly agree with Dr. Brown in so far as he 
advances the claim that the maintenance of the colony was due to the untir- 
ing efforts of such men as Sandys and the Earl of Southampton, and that it 
was the rule of the company and not of the king under which liberal institu- 
tions were firmly planted in v'irginia, even if he fails to accept many of the 
assumptions put forth in the book. 

From a most interesting summary presented on pp. 612-C32 are taken the 
followin-^ iteni.< : 

In November, 1G19, there were about 900 English. Between 1<>10-1624 
4,749 English were sent to Virginia, but in February, 1624, less than 1,100 of 
these were living in Virginia. But one stone house was reported in the colony 
in J621. The inhabitants consisted of 432 males and 17G females who were 
free; 441 males and 4G females as servants; 107 children; 23 negroes; 2 
Indians; total, 1.227. 

The Church of England was the church of the colony, but there was liberty 
of religion, some of the immigrants being non-conformists, some of the minis- 
ters " Independents." The early ecclesiastical history of the colony is prob- 
ably more incomplete than the secular. 

A valuable part of the book is the mention of transfers of shares in the com- 
pany, and lists of patents granted. Dr. Brown has afforded great aid to the 
student of Virginian genealogy from the liberal mention of those concerned 
in the enterprise both in England and America, and in ways both great and 
small. 

N^ The History of Orangeburg County, B.C. By A. S. Salley, Jr. 8vo. 
pp. 572. Price, $2. 

The spirit of antiquarian research has awakened in the South during the 
past five years. Not only have we magazines and other special publications 
devoted to genealogy and local history, but there have recently appeared 
three or four important historical works. One of these we owe to Mr. 
Salley. 

*' At the time of the Eevolution the District of Orangeburg embraced the 
present counties of Barnwell, Bamberg, Aiken, Lexington, and Orangeburg. 
In his introduction Mr. vSalley traces the various political and judicial sub- 
divisions of South Carolina from the earliest times to the present day, with 
particular reference to Orangeburg County. In his first chapter some 
account is given of the people who first settled in the unbroken country that 
was later erected into Orangeburg District. This work will be of much 
value to genealogical students all over the South. In the second chapter is 
printed a record of births, deaths, and marriages, kept by the Kev. John 
Giessendanner, who was a minister in Orangeburg from 1740 to 17()0. Tins 
is the most complete of all the record books of the sort kept in South Caro- 
lina during colonial days, and is of inestimable value to the genealoi^ical 
student, and to those of German descent, for the section about Orangeburg 
■was almost entirely settled by Germans."

New Brunswick Bibliography. The books and writers of the Province. 
By W. G. MacFarlane. 8vo. pp.98. Price, 50 cents. 

A bibliography relating to any subject or place is a labor of magnitude. 
The biographical items collected by the author concerning the authors, and 
notes concerning the books, are valuable. 

The Spalding Memorial. Revised edition. By Charles Warren Spald- 
ing. Svo. Cloth. Illustrated. Price, $10. 

This is one of the most complete genealogical works ever published. A 
quarter century ago the late Samuel J. Spalding published a remarkable 
genealogy of tlie Spalding families, which attracted considerable attention. 
The present book is based upon that early edition, and contains the records 
of the family to date. INIoreover, the editor has benefited by the great addi- 
tions to genealogical information of the past few years. The result is a 
volume of nearly 1,300 pages, and enumerating about 15,000 persons. Exten- 
sive chapters are devoted to the family in England, to Scottish and German 
families, and to records of military service. Few families can boast of such a 
magazine of information.

The Barkkr Genealogy. By James C. Parshall. This is an ancestral 
record, and embraces many families. Ephraim and Richard Barker came to 
Connecticut before 1752. The descendants of Ephraim are noticed in this 
pamphlet. * 

HiSTORv ani> Genealogv of Pltek iMoNTAGLt of Nanscmond and 
Lancaster counties, Va., and his descendants, 1G21-1894:. By Geo. W. 
Montague. Amherst, 1894. Price, $5. 

Mr. Montague has not only given an excellent account of the genealogy 
of the Virginian family, but from his book may be obtained a great deal of 
knowledge concerning sources of original information in Virginia. 

The author states that l*eter Montague, of Virginia, has been identified as 
the son of Peter and Eleanor Montague, of Boveney, Buckinghamshire, 
England, and as the brother of Richard .Montague, who at a later date migrated 
to New England. ITe calls attention to the similarity in ancestry of many 
New England and Virginian families. An account of the more noted Mon- 
tague families of England is printed. 

Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, Mass. By David W. 
Hoyt. Part III. We have already noticed tliis excellent work. The present 
part covers families Foote to Martin. Price, $1 per part. 

Just Jingles is a little book of poems by A. J. Burdick, published hy 
Peter Paul l^ook Company. Mr. Burdick's poems for children are much 
appreciated. Many of the poems in this little volume arc more than 
"jingles." 

South Britain Sketches and Records. By W. C. Sharpe. Seymour, 
Conn, 1898. 8vo. pp. 107. $2. Mr. Sharpe'has put forth an interesting 
volume. The initiative of the book was a sketch of South Britain and 
its people, by Titus Pierce, originally intended for publication, but never 
put in print until handed to the compiler of this book. The genealogical 
material includes records of baptisms, marriages and burials, cemetery 
inscriptions, and accounts of the following families: Allen, Averill, Barnes, 
Bassett, Booth, Bradley, Bray, Canfield, Downs, Edmonds, French, Gilbert, 
Guthrie, Ilann, Hayes, Hendryx, Hill, Mitchell, Pierce, Piatt, Post, Russell,

at Enfield. Mr. Allen thinks he was son of John Firman, of Watertown, 
who died before 1653. To the list of early Firmans enumerated in the 
pamphlet may be added the following: John Forman in a list of Bed- 
ford petitioners, 17, 4 mo., 1673; ])ixey Firman, a creditor of the estate of 
Edward Foster, of jNIarblehead, 1G72 ; Thomas Fermau, witness to the will of 
George Coall (of Lynn), dated Nov. 8, 1G75. 

The names Forman, Firman, and Fairman in early times were interchange-

Farish Register op Stewkelet, Buckinghamshire, England, 1545-

This printed copy of the old registers of Stewkeley, the ancestral home of 
more than one American family, covers ninety pages. Itis an exact transcript 
of the original made under the supervision of Mr. Dickson, the Vicar. This 
is the first instance of publication of an English register in America. A very 
limited edition was printed. 

The History of the Wagenseller Family in America, with Kindred 
Branches. By Geo. W. Wagenseller, Middleburg. Pa., 1898. Small 8vo. 
pp. 225 

This volume is the product of the compiler's press. It throws n)uch li?ht 
upon early German settlement of Pennsylvania, and the customs of the people, 
and is quite creditable to the autlior. 

Christopher VVagonseil came to Pennsylvania before 1734, in which year he 
was a resident of iianover township, which included the present town of Potts- 
town. There is a tradition that lie came from Holland. He died in 1762, 
leaving three children: Ann Mary, wife of John Derr; Elizabeth Catherine, 
wife of David llaag; and Jolm, Avho died 1799. It is from him that the 
Wagensellers derive their descent, his sons having adopted the present form 
of the name. 

A HiSTORV AND Genealogy of the Family of Baillte of DtrNAiN, 
etc., with a sketch of the family of Alclntosh, Bulloch, and other families. 
By Jos. G. B. Bulloch, M.I). 1898. 8vo pp. 111. 

In preparin;^ this work the author has had the assistance of Capt. Douglas 
Wimberley whose genealogical labors in elucidating the history of the Irvines 
of Scotland, and allied families, are well known to Scottish genealogists. Dr. 
Bulloch has collected trustworthy information concerning several Scottish 
families, as well of the old country lines as in America. The pedigree of the 
Baillies is remarl<ably interesting. 

Kenneth Baillic of the Dunain family was in Georgia in 1735. His son 
Robert, a patriot officer, was killed at the siege of Savannah in 1779. The 
family is extinct in America, though represented by the families of Bulloch, 
Irvine, and others. 

We are glad to see American genealogists contributing so greatly to our 
knowledge of the Scottish families represented in America.

many generations a family of Pillsburys, whose descendants are known as 
Spillsburys. It is a family tradition that William Pillsbury came from Staf- 
fordshire, and there is an opening for him in the pedi2:ree of the Leek family. 
There is, however, absolutely no evidence of the connection Miss Getcliell 
does not reprint the P^nglish Pillsbury wills and comments upon them, which 
appeared in the I^ssex Institute Historical Collections in 18U5, and were also 
reprinted in separate form.* 

The suggestion that the emigrant by committing some rascality in England 
caused a displeased father to cut off the eldest son with the traditional 
shilling rests upon an insecure foundation. The will merely disposes 
of the testator's personal estate, the eldest receiving a mere acknowl- 
edgment, as he w.'is bound to receive his lion's share of the small property. 
The punishment of the immigrant in New Kngland. for a misdemeanor com- 
mon at the time between servants or apprentices living under the same roof ,t 
does not suggest an ill life in the old home. 

The book is well done, both the compiler's and the printer's portions of the 
work. The arrangement is clear, and the right balance ])re8erved between 
bare genealogical det lils and biographical notes. In the volume appears the 
sketch by Miss Gotchell entitled " .An Old Home audits Romance," which was 
published in this magazine for October, 18i)3. 

The illustrations are most interesting, and include a view of Pillsbury 
Grange and the old house in Newbury.

NOTE. 

With this number closes another volume of " Putnam's His- 
torical Magazine." We look forward to renewing for another 
year the tie which binds together publisher and subscriber, 
for we feel that the promises made a year ago have been kept 
in a manner satisfactory to our subscribers. 

The editor's absence of several months durinir the first 
half of the year was the cause of two or three sliirht mis- 
chances in the appearance of the magazine, as, for instance, 
the delivery of the May number before the April issue, and 
the mistake of labelling the May number, on the outside 
wrapper, as .April. 

Before the out])reak of war there was every appearance of 
a considerable increase in the subscription list for 1898, and 
indeed a number of names have been added to our list, prob- 
ably 25 per cent, gain over the preceding year. On the 
other hand, many of our regular subscribers have been so 
interested in the developments of the war that they have 
forgotten to remit their usual subscription. We take this 
occasion to remind our readers that the yearly subscription 
is two dollars, and is payable in advance. An eight years' 
record is sufficient to reassure new subscribers that there i- 
no likelihood of failure to receive a full complement of num- 
bers for the year. 

We have more than kept our promise to print 300 pages. 
During 1899, if our subscription list continues to increase, 
we shall make a further increase in the number of pages 
printed. 

There is considerable expense attached to the printing of 
the coats of arms in colors. 

It was decided not to commence the Harpswell records in 
this volume, as other more important matters, as far as we 
could judge from the replies of subscribers regarding the

field of genealog}'' in which they were interested, abounded. 
The Cummings and Purrington genealogies were postponed 
till after the editor's visit to England, in hopes that further 
light might be obtained regarding the origin of the family. 
Considerable success was attained in the Purrington search. 

The Tligginson papers will be continued. 

Among the more important articles to appear soon is an 
account, by the editor, of the Endicott family in England. 
Information concerning the origin of the early leaders in 
English colonization in America has more than mere genea- 
logical interest. 

The value of the Beverl}" Baptisms has been demonstrated 
by the portion already printed. Not as great progress as 
anticipated has been made with the Essex County Deeds and 
Probate liecords, but the material will be continued, as will 
also the Essex Couuty Coui-t Records. 

During 1899 we shall commence printing some of the 
hitherto unprinted town records of Salem, probably begin- 
ning witli that most valual)le of records, the Commoners' 
Record. The Commoners' Record shows the division of the ^ 

common lands, and provides evidence to locate most of the 
early settlers of Salem, as well as supplying in many cases 
the sole evidence of relationship between early Salem settlers / 
and later generations. The second volume of Town Records 
has not the same value as the first volume, which has been 
printed by Mr. Upham, but contains a most valuable record 
of the doings of the inhabitants subsequent to 1660, as well 
as facts concerning newcomers. Both of the above records 
have been but little used by genealogists. We do not feel 
that we shall give undue space to the publication of these 
old records of Salem and Essex county, for in every case 
they precede the extensive migration fi'om that part of 
Massachusetts to all parts of New England, and in many 
instances to the South. 

The series of coat armor will include several Soutliern 
families. Failure of opportunity to verify the claims

NOTE. 337 

advanced has been the reason for their non-representation in 
this Yohime. While not setting up as an infallible judge of 
the merits of the claims to coat armor sent in to us, yet we 
fee] that we are impartial. Where there is utter failure to 
actually prove descent from an armorial family, or to present 
excellent circumstantial proofs, the arms will not be inserted. 
In the case of long-continued use of the arms, even where 
the connection is not known, where there is everv reason to 
believe the right to bear arms existed, then a concise state- 
ment of the case will be presented and the question left to 
others for final decision. The publisher cannot ailbrd to 
insert more than one colored print in an issue, but if means 
are provided by those most nearly interested, additional 
plates will be inserted, always under the conditions named 
above. Subscribers are at liberty to present articles dealing 
with claims to coat armor, illustrated by pen and ink 
sketches, or in colors, over their own names^ but the editor 
reseiwes the right to state the facts of the case according to 
his own opinion, in an editorial note. In this connection it 
is not out of place to state that frequently a slight expense, 
incuri'ed by the investigation of the records at the College of 
Arms, may supply proof showing the grant of a particular 
coat of arms to have been made after the migration of the 
founder of the American family. The origin of a great 
many of the coats of arms in use may be traced if the records 
are referred to. 

It is only in the cases of very ancient coats of arms, or of 
actual grants to Colonials, that absence of proof of connec- 
tion w^th families mentioned in the Heraldic Visitations 
can be superseded by other evidence. The above remarks 
apply to English heraldry alone. The right to arms of 
Scottish origin is much more difficult to prove. 

In closing, the i)ublisher takes the opportunity to announce 
that well-prepared copies of original records of early date, 
hitherto unprinted, well vouched for, will be accepted, and 
paid for upon publication. The copyist must be able to

show qualification for the work claimed to have been done. 
A carefully abbreviated manuscript will be more likely to be 
accepted than one copied in full, especially if useless and 
frequently duplicated words are expurgated. For instance, 
in a list of marriages there is no necessity of repeatinir the 
word " married " in each instance. The same is true of the 
words "born," "died," "baptized." But every name, and 
all locations, and any personal memoranda should be accu- 
rately copied. Selections will not be paid for. 

Valuable orenealos^ical material sometimes exists in entries, 
which might be omitted by an inexperienced copyist. The 
propriety of printing certain words, phrases, or statements 
can be safely left to the matured judgment of the editor. 

To those of our readers who would help us make the 
magazine more worthy of support, and especially to enlarge 
the number of pages printed, we have a few words to say, in 
our advertising pages, regarding agents for soliciting new 
subscriptions. 

If every one of our subscribers who is a member of a local 
historical society, or of a chapter of some patriotic-heredi- 
tary societ}^ would obtain five new subscribers in the society, 
those members would be able to present the society with 
some needed genealogy or local history. As a Christmas 
present to one interested in genealogy, the magazine for the 
past or incoming year is most appropriate. 



Parker-Stevens Note. — Joseph Parker, of Andover, 
who died 1678, is called "brother" by Elizabeth Stevens, 
widow, in 1673. She was then aged 60, born, therefore, 
about 1613. John Stevens, of Newbury and Andover, died 
in 1662, leaving a widow, Elizabeth, who died 1694, tet. 80, 
bom, therefore, about 1614. The identity of Elizabeth 
Stevens as sister of Joseph Parker would appear to be estab- 
lished. According to Savage, Stevens came from Caver- 
sham, Co. Oxford, and Parker left property in Kumsey, Co. 
Hants.

AGENTS WANTED. 



The publisher of this magazine desires an agent in nearly every county 
in the United States. In moat communilirs there are a few persons more oV 
less interested in genealogical subjects. This is especially true in the older 
States and of parts of our Pacific Coast. The formation of chapters of the 
various patriotic societies has done much to awaken an interest in genealogy 
and heraklry. Publications of a genealogical character are not widely adver- 
tised, nor is it possible to distribute copies on the '' hit or miss " plan. 

In order to enlarge tlie circulation of Putnam's Histoiucal ivIagazine 
the publisher requires a great many interested friendly readers loJio will ad as 
ageuta in procuring new subscribers. Persons with a taste for genealogy can 
immediat'-ly call to mind the names of a few acquaintances similarly inter- 
ested. Amons; those are sure to be some who will subscribe to this masrazine 
if the matter is presented to their attention. Secretaries of chapters and 
societies can add a trifle to the library fund by obtaining a few new sub- 
scribers for us. 

Young people can earn a few dollars by soliciting orders among their 
elderly friends. A perfectly honest presentation of the merits of this publi- 
cation, together with the exhibition of a specimen copy or two, is all that need 
be done. We find that a very small percentage of our subscribers fail to 
renew their subscriptions. 

We make the foUov/ing offer: 

We will send the magaziae for one year to five new subscribers whose names arc sent 
us by an agent on receipt of ipo. (Tiie yearly subscription is $2.) 

We will pay a commission of 30% on new subscriptions when less than five; oO^/o 
commission will be p;'*J on five or more new subscriptions. In every case the money 
must accompany t^'c order (the agent retaining the commission), and we are in nowise 
responsihle for money which is not paid to us with the order. A commission of J0% is 
allowed on renewals. 

Specimen copies will be sent to any person desiring to attempt to obtain additional 
Bubscribers for us. 

Any person showing an active interest in our work, and sending us several 
new subscriptions, will receive the magazine regularly. 

Every person soliciting orders for the magazine should send us name and address, 
also occupation, and whether a member of an historical or patriotic society. 

In order to help agents we will seni spacimen copies of the magazine to addresses 
furnished us. Do not send us names of persons who cannot afford to subscribe for the 
magazine. 

When agents reside in shire towns or in places settled before the Revo- 
lution there is always tiie possibility of obtaining an opportunity to do some 
genealogical work, provided they are fitted. 

Queries and orders for genealogical searches reach the magazine from all parts of 
the country, and the searches are nearly as widely distributed. Correspomience with 
agents well situated to carry on minor genealogical research soon develops knowledge 
regarding their ability to copy and search records.

*' Putnam^ s" Ancestral Charts. 



A new edition of the Ancestral Charts is now ready. There are some 
changes in the design of the book, which it is hoped will add to its usefulness. 

Thirty-four full-page charts are provided, together with four half-paoe 
charts de^igned to accommodate cases where the paternal record alone Is 
known. 

The form is sucb that any number of generations may be recorded, all the ancestors, 
thirty-one in number, for five generations being shown on each page, or ten generations^ 
with sixty-four ancestors, being viewed at one glance, as the charts face each other. 

Over 1,000 ancestors may be recorded in one of these books, all so 
arranged that a glance at the right-hand columns of the charts serves as a key 
to the location of any family. 

The arrangement is simple and easily mastered by novices in genealogical 
work. 

There is ample room on the charts for notes, also special pages provided 
for the same puipose. 

A feature of the Ancestral Charts is that a purchaser may obtain the 
special ai d vvprecedenfec' 2'^'''ivilpne of a valuable critical survey of his fnal 
work without charge. This offer is fully described on the cover of each copy. 

The charts arc bound in strong, serviceable, flexible card-board covers, to 
admit loHing. 

Any number of additional charts may be bought and added to those 
between the covers. 

As a working and permanent form of recording ancestry the Charts ore 
not surpassed. 

At the World's Columbian Exposition the publishing company of which 
Mr. Putnam was the head received a medal and award. The exhibit was 
principally of a genealogical character. Among other books and forms 
Putnam's Ancestral Charts were exhibited. The wording of the award was 
as follows : 

*' For charts, records, printed books, etc., exhibited to illustrate 

methods and systems employed in gathering, compiling, and printing 

genealogical and historical works. The systems are thorough and easily 

understood, and the methods of filing for reference and compiling for 

printing have been perfected to a high degree, noticeably that of Eben, 

Putnam. . . . Tlie exhibit imparts valuable information as to I'ow 

ancestral and historical data are gathered, compiled, and printed^ and 

' ' is a comprehensive expose of the thorough methods and systems adop^.ed 

by the exhibitors fur the correct and rapid execution of such ivork.'' 

Mr. Putnam also received a diploma of honorable mention as a desiztser- 
Putnam's Ancestral Charts have received commendation from iz^iu" 
quarters, not only in this country, but abroad.

NEW AND IMPORTANT HERALDIC WORK, 

The Right to Bear Arms. 

By "X" of the " Saturday Review." 

Students of heraldry in every English-speaking country will welcome the publication 
of this book, which, although bearing the title which was the caption of the articles by 
"X," is practically a new presentation of the standpoint taken by that acknowledger! 
authority. 

Of late, Americans have more than ever shown an interest in heraldry, and should 
they desire to profit by the errors of their English cousins there is no better method than 
by reading what '• X " has to say. 

The book contains many warrants, judgments, etc., and other documents illustrating' 
the author's argument, rendering the work of especial value to students of heraldry. 

Crown 8vo., tastefully printed in antique type, and suitably bound, 

price $1.50. 

The book will appear in America, published at Salem, simultaneously with its appej»r- 
anee in London. Orders should be forwarded at once, as the edition is limited.

THE CRISIS OF THE REVOLUTION 

By V/ILLIAM ABBATT. 

Being the story of Arnold and Andr€ from Sept. 18 to Oct. 2, 1780, now for the first time 

told in every detail, and ilhistrated with vie\7S frora original photographs 

of every site identified with the story. 

A portrait of Andre, from an oil painting by himself, and a unique portrait, by Trum- 
ball, of Joshua Hett Smith, both hitherto unpublished, are of rare interest. 

William L. Stone, author of " Burgoyne's Campaign," the "Battle of Saratoga," 
»♦ Life of Sir William Johnson," etc., says of this book : 

" I think it most invaluable. As a comprehensive and thoroughly accurate account 
of Andre's journey, nothing has ever been Avritten equal to it. Withal, it is written in a 
most perspicuous and cliarming stylo — so that the hackneyed phrase is in this instance 
most true — viz., that no library of an American scholar can be complete without it.

GENEALOGIES OF NORWICH, CONN., 1659-1800. 

The author of "Old Houses of the Antient Town of Norwich" will bring out in 
pamphlet form the genealogies of all the residents of Norwich from the time of settle- 
ment to the year 1800, if enough subscriptions are obtained to pay the cost of publication. 
It was at first intended that these should be published with the illustrated history of 
Norwich Rouses, but as many persons desire the g -nealogies and do not care for tlie 
illustrated work, tlie author has decided to publish them separately. The series will begin 
with the genealogies of tlie original settlers, giving all the birth and marriage records that 
can be found in Norwich and neighboring towns to the beginning of this century. 

PAMPHLET No. 1 will contain tlie fol'owing families: Adgate, Allyn, Backus,

**Mr. "William W. Wheildon, who is well known as a student and lover of ancient 
lore, has published a very timely and iuLeresling volume, entitled, ' Curiotfiiie6 of History.' 
It contains a dozen or more papers upon matters connected with the history of Boston : us 
the topograi)hy, the public ferries, Boston cornfields, Puritan government, persecution of 
the Quakers, first American newspaper, curious Boston lectures, remarkable proclama- 
tions, etc. 'Without aspiring to the dignity of a history, the volume contains a large 
amount of historical material, much of which is exceedingly quaint and curious, Bos- 
tonians in particular will find it well worth tlie time spent in reading it, from tlie informa- 
tion v>liich it gives concerning the early history of Boston, and the light which it throv-s 
upon the old ways and customs." — Boston Journal.

Uufettered by views of publication comuiitiees, uncoufined \^\ territorial 
coDsiderations, the editor, who is also the publisher, is at perfect libeity to 
consult the needs of subscribers to the maoazine. 

Subscribers are requested to fill out the acconipauying blank and send it 
to the publisher at tiie time of remitting their subscription for 1S91>. 

The main object of the magazine from its inception has been to offer an 
opportunity tor the printing, and therefore the preservation, of records of towns, 
parishes, counties, as well as genealogical sketches of the beginnings of Ameri- 
can families.

covering the fjrst four or five generations of American families are of great 
value to genealogical students, and contributions of carefulW ])repared articles 
of that nature', irrespective of locality, are sought by the editor and will bo 
printed as opportunity occurs. ^ . 

Every subscriber can do a little toward helping on the good work of pre- 
servino- our enrly records. 

Copies, complete for a specified period, of parish records, church bap- 
tisms and other church records, cemetery inscriptions, town vital records, wjI) 
be printed in the magazine, when contributed. 

The smaller towns -lUd parishes possess records of the greatest vahie , 
the more valunble as th- ire more readily overlooked.. There is no section 
of the Union from which t ^ch records will not be welcome. 

Attention is called to the index to names of persons and places in this 
'and the preceding two volumes of the niagazine. A similar index to the first 
three volumes of the magazine, new series, appeared in December, ISl'-.*. 
These indexes may be obtained separately. Hereafter we shall print indexes 
yearly. 

A summary of articles printed since the inception of the magazine is 
printed in this issue. A brief examination will satisfy the most critical th:it 
we have attempted to live up to our standard. From tiie list of contents oi 
the past eight volumes a very good idea may be formed of the probabh 
character and value of the contents of succeeding volumes. 

Attention is directed to the statement sh,owing the numljer of page- 
printed during the past eight years, together with a table sho^ving the number 
of pages devoted to various classes of records, to family genealogy, revuln- 
tionary rolls, etc.
